Two lives, a moment, fullness, bliss.


Things happen here. Macquarie Street, Hobart. November 2011.

Another day, another [two] birthday parties...

Meeting in a Lift, Vladimir Holan

We stepped into the lift. The two of us, alone
We looked at each other and that was all.
Two lives, a moment, fullness, bliss.
At the fifth floor she got out and I went on up
knowing I would never see her again,
that it was a meeting once and for all,
that if I followed her I would be like a dead man in her tracks
and that if she came back to me
it would only be from the other world.
