sh, flash



She is seven and lives in a blue house with seventeen cats, do I want one? We are riding a bus from Taupo, and she sings long songs. She says the wind in the fields is a grass swimming pool, and after the downpour, when the sky turns yellow, she sees a very high uenuku. That’s rainbow in Pakeha, she teaches me. She wants to eat sheep tails, but not the tails of the spring lambs we count. Have I seen a baby come out from the belly? Do I have a husband? She says I should have pink hair, go out in a pair of jeans and a cardigan. Then a man will take me home.

You've captured that kind conversation you can only have while traveling—and usually only by land.
