Ecliptic
by Ivy Alvarez

through fog of driving clouded
twin lit road we inch along fastly tentative
the moon a rumour we were leaving behind

seven years later          images of curling
white water-frothed mud
as it surfs down a main street
carrying a car-phalanx toy-spun and giddy
plasters wetly to our screens

a car of our belongings
co-located        two wheels here
two wheels river-bound
a ferry disgorges more cars

in Queensland a man
clings to a rail on a grey day
rising water makes a flag of him
his hands lashed to metal

the present clings like night
dashboard gloaming on our faces
rabbits’ eyes prink a warning then black
