Outside the Hero of Waterloo

Which is Sydney's oldest pub. There's a yellow
sign with two figures and the word
I feel like loafing as there's the larger
part of me which is an idle man. Then there
is the active life whizzing by like a monorail.
Like something from the fourth dimension
youre not supposed to see. At night the
Australian flag whips past my window, and
it looks like a man running in a raincoat.
At the Circular Quay train station a plasma
screen reads, for outlying neighbourhoods,
Delay Earlier Vandalism. Did I mention that
at the most breathtaking views in the Blue
Mountains there are signs that tell you
of the vista, and they are repeated in
braille. What could be crueler.
