ephemera on canvas

on an empty dawn
a palette
begun as black
has passed through suggested blue
to orange-copper
down low at the bottom border
of the frame

three lines are being drawn
in white
towards me
and Melbourne

two lines
extended toward an idea
that must be Sydney
approximately inside the heart
of sunrise

one line is on
a right-angled collision course

that would be Adelaide
again

a possibility of Perth
