The Friday Poem: Channel Hopping by Geoff Cochrane

A poem by Miramar poet Geoff Cochrane.


Channel Hopping


Stupa or Stuka?

Weet-Bix or Welsh rabbit?

Galactic aerodrome or Matchbox truck?


I’m young in my dreams, still young.


Beautiful Keanu’s wearing shades—

antique shades with iodine-coloured lenses.


I’m young in my dreams, still young,

and I still have some ink in my pen,

but one repents of wanting to be known.
