Sport 35: Winter 2007


page 42


In the town,
streets are vacant.

Power pylons squat
in the surrounding paddocks,
their weight on the landscape.

A one horse town some called it,
until a documentary starred
an anorexic girl—

at school,
in her kitchen,
as she scraped her plate—

beside a mirror in her swimwear
the male reporter showed viewers
she had no idea of herself.
