Jeltje Fanoy #50 bayside streets

multi-billion price-tags

where are the neighbours

it feels like a graveyard

no one outside, tying up
untidy bean stalks
against the Bay winds

no more music, no
open doors, windows

there used to be smoke,
the promise of BBQs

intermittent hammering

where are the painters,
the old ladders

brought out, once more,
to paint the roofs, red


  1. lovely, the dormitory suburb, sad

  2. thanks.. it's sad to see the older Bayside suburbs so deserted!
