A Brunswick Blessing

May your life be as long as Sydney road
As sweet as baklava
Filled with the raging passion of old Italian women
Jostling for position at the deli-counter.

May your demands for justice, joy, peace
Be as loud as Sydney Road traffic
And as strong as the Istanbul halal butcher

May all your days have the exciting variance
Of Alaysa’s dip-list, the striking beauty
Of Franco Cozzo furniture, the health of a
Good felafel, the hope of Princes Park duck pond.

May the whisper of our last tram conductors
Echo eerily in your children’s ears and
May your children’s children staff the
Anarchist bookshop.

~ Shelley Miller, 2001
