the advent donkey waits
Outside a disused church building,
In the noon day heat,
In outback Australia,
the donkey waits.
Nearby, Joseph sips a coldie
yarning with the innkeeper,
Channel 9 blarring,
another slow cricket crucifixion.
Across the street, Mary serves at the local cafe
collecting sandwich scripts
clearing the crumbs
left over, from passing tourists
with tales of shiny stars
arising from the Eastern States
slowly emerge from the hovering haze
A languid fly
drooping with heat
to wait, another outback Advent
