In September 2020, I visited—

Eastern Freeway

like a vast temple on the trail

submerged in white noise

a perched cormorant, laboured beats

trees feeling for the light

limbs swaying

beneath the colossus, a single duck

beneath my hand, the stuff of making

a crawlspace between extended ribs

sudden thumps, a tonne of metal passing

All crossings
