2-Poem #15 Into Britomart - Michael O'Leary

Into Britomart
Past Parnell Pool and into
the mesh of rails
At Mechanics Bay the train
begins its descent

Into Britomart underground
terminal. Shiny
Steel and glass with giant
ponga ferns

Water fountains above
the skylight roof
Trains, buses and ferries
within reach of

Each other outside the
old Post Office:

who said there’s no such thing as progress?
