Check out my poem in the August-September 2012 edition of Sotto. Sotto is Australian Poetry's online journal and I am honoured to have my poem nestled in between some wonderful articles and poetry reviews.
By Rhiannon Hall
grey thunders Bowral skies
two women with windswept hair
warming over cannelloni, their cappuccinos cupped.
Lovers lean across tables, faces almost touch;
Order seafood—Grigliato Misto, white wine.
Big men, cocky as sunshine yellow parrots,
chucking back macchiatos; riffling work schedules,
envy every casual diner.
Waitresses flitting across the room,
enjoy sweet meringue aromas,
the delicate perfumes
of stout women waiting to pay.
