Africa has come to Kings Park
the families could have walked here
three billion years ago when Ur
was the only continent on earth.
Women with bright cloth
wrapped about their heads
men saunter where they will
kids are rolling down the hill.
A young black man says when asked
—I am from Tanzania.
He rhymes Tanzania with Australia.
We are all walking on the English sward.
And upside down as it likes to be
another African cousin, a Boab tree,
trucked in from Warmun in the Kimberley
begins to sprout in the Two Rivers Lookout.
