dinners for that couple on the street
just brought home a new bundle.

“We’ve got a room downstairs if you want it
it’s not legal height but there’s a bed and a toilet.”

through the state
every neighbour rolled up
Dave filled his 80series
with bread, milk ‘n tea. Drove over
Mt Glorious to get through to Coominya.
Neville found an old lady –
her house in Fairfield
Trev finished his shift
at Roma St Fire station –
then organised teams in Rocklea
Jesse dried out photos.
Bazza offered his bobcat.
drinks and biscuits in her back pack
giving out smoko.

Handing out cold ones.

up new shoes to give money.
