Famous Reporter # 32

March, 2006


                               JILLIAN PATTINSON

                           Blue moon over the island-
                                 split shift that has the cops, ambos
                                 and psych nurses into overtime.
                                 Round the boatyards, the owl
                                 hunts with the light, delighting
                                 in this double helping.
                                 Up and down the eastern seaboard,
                                 insomniacs and dreamers
                                 grow anxious, go astray.
                                 My lunatic floating in the blue-
                                 riding spring tides, roaring north;
                                 navigating straits, ebbing south.
