fruit flies






their daring red eye lights my room

the stench of rot filling my lungs and room

their improper buzzing buzzes in my ear

courtesy of the fruit that rots 

the peels of fruit brings these pests

and even with their treats gone they still stay

humans should reflect

we should be more like fruit flies


Over the course of 2022, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a collection of poetry. This is one of the collections produced in these workshops. 

Year of Poetry 2022 was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund and Parramatta Leagues Club.
