fish and animals
over me sun, roll over me rain
in first light the canoe people came
followed by ships for killing
after the slaughter, convicts arrived
of rectangles on rolling hills
and then they went
the tide soon brought
and then came the dreamer
now left only are ruins, to
stories of lives loved and lost
there is a whale grave in the ruined penitentiary
the blood of animals under the mess hall
pustulent stains and geese
preservation and decay
a place possum comes back to in the night
dawn brings pademelon
roll over me sun
roll over me rain

There is a Cape Barren goose feather on the nonlinear discussion
page. Note the patch of black on the feather; a similar marking is found on a
variety of clover widespread in New Zealand Aotearoa.

Between the skulls is a photo of fossils embedded in rocks on Maria.
if you still want more, here's a couple of kangaroos well, mucking
around (Windows media file only).
