Joshua Finzi (University of Canberra, Australia)



Your legs
break in the

so you become
seafoam and

sometimes the magic
uncoils and unbalances
against the grain

of the sky
but you return again
to salt and sand

in the eyes of
a fish
you dream of

the lowest plate of bone
and rock and

sometimes the magic
disperses in howls
against the spaces

between your control
but you breathe deep
in a cat-cow

the salt and the brine
mesmerise even constellations
so you break sea-drift

swimming like barramundi
through the ocean in
between the waves



Joshua Finzi is currently studying his doctorate at the University of Canberra. He has previously been published in Voiceworks and Cordite. Lives presently under late stage capitalism and is getting very fed up with it.
