Australia Day

Suburban Melbourne;

In bed with a bucket of fried chicken

photo by hungrybison

and a belly full of Mexican beer.

An empty packet of Marlboro cigarettes and

discarded candy wrappers lay amongst the sheets.

Rain pelts the window as tanned young girls

sun themselves on a distant Californian beach.

An endless parade of commercials

snap him back to reality.

Australia Day.
