Wrapped in scarfs and winter threads, the two of us sat on those airport seats. A return flight to Perth awaited you and a weekend escape to Sydney was ready for my carry on baggage. This unspoken silence chilled our spines, the unknown uncertainty of what existed beyond our four days of intertwined romance, chattered […]

I awake to the scent of incense burning. I sprawl my body against the sheets as my eyes come into focus. My butt cheeks slide against the sheets like a child thickly applying glue stick to an art collage. My vision is slightly hazy. The remains of a joint slowly simmer on a bedside table […]

What will happen upstairs? Will I open the door and he’s standing there in nothing but tightly fitted briefs, his chest hair scented like the cinnamon of […]

Go Girl Definition: A group of girls that you can depend on to make a pact at the beginning of every year, preferably over shots of tequila on a beach. That will help you for the next 12 months to make this resolution a reality and whom you will give guidance, vino sessions and optimism […]

When I was a baby my uncle didn’t turn up his headphones to block out my cries. Instead he sung me we’re all in the dance by Feist until I settled, in French and English too.  When I was two I cut my knee, Ned and all the other kids laughed at my tears, so my uncle bit his […]

Your personalised alarm ringtone, The Arcade Fire’s Wake Up, shocks you out of your slumber. Upon reaching over to deactivate your phone you see it’s 10.30 a.m and you’ve got exactly three hours before having to arrive at that family event hosted by your insanely domesticated little sister.  Your senses begin to awaken; these are not […]
