Water’s Flow
Lucy Marinelli (Macquarie University, Australia)



The docks of Napoli

Chilled winds surround me
Relics of my teen father
Ghost boat sets sail
Floats on misty breeze — echoes
Like the deep hole of his grave

On the tannin waters of the River Murray

With each stroke we glide
On calm secretive waters
Spirit’s eerie spot
Aged four she plays on the bank
Her dad drowns in murky depths

Ocean’s gilded glow

Waves crash reflecting
Each star tossing shimmered light
Beams dance like ideas
Swooning with delirium
Awakened from depths below
