Treasure Island

Bernadette Hall

(Alexandra)

Early Settler


You dream a hand
that will stitch a flag
to the bullet-hole
in your shoulder

you dream a man
who wears a huia feather,
stands all Heathcliff
in the doorway
of the prefabricated house

you dream a door-post
painted with your insignia:
a monkey, a black swan feather,
a bike lock
