    i am fond of keeping secrets can you
    recently published in Brisbane new voices 2
    would say i am a man who keeps his own counsel
    born in dalby town on the edge of the western downs
    i am particularly interested in all things emotional
    in relationships - people and how they think
    the underlying motivation for why
    people act and do the things
    they are want to do
    meaning means
    to me

    Careful You Might Scare Me

    Well it’s all or nothing
    the way it’s always been
    when I ride crazy, wild and free
    like a bohemian cowboy should be
    astride a white stallion above the neon night
    way, way out there hiding amongst the stars
    where the strings of a mandolin can tickle my heart.

    Intriguing reflections can signal connection
    and an intimate conversational craving
    now the night’s festivities have finished
    and the coffee dregs are drying
    and the mile high ride is over.

    Fear turns my head away from her lips
    and I peck a soft cheek instead.
    Seduce and reject, such exquisite regret.
    Damn, we almost kissed!
