Kapiti writer - Lindsay Rabbitt
My Chinese sneakers leak. They cost 15 bucks
At The Warehouse. I didn't seek poverty.
It found me grizzling on Renown Road,
It found me shivering on the Russian Steppes.
As a kid I sleepwalked. My night wandering
became legend. I trekked to slums and to palaces.
I sleepwalked the mile to my grandparents' house.
They found me at dawn in the gold room.
They found me in the bed without sheets.
