Fennel

vogue australiaI was walking in circles in a field of fennel yesterday darling.

I was in town again — the dizzying, sun scorching town, where women don black layers of dirt under their nail beds and where eyes are dark and distrustful. I had been walking aimlessly about when I found myself in a field of tall, wispy fennel which I could not get out of.

I brushed through the wisps, staining my dress with yellow dust. I did not have a hat on; I was dizzy and feeling heavy from the exposure to the sun.

It is like having the wind blow in your face but seeing your relative life being unaffected by it.

It is like spending hours walking in the rain, struggling to arrive at your destination, but having time be still in your relative life.

It is like spending an hour in a chair without having moved but then you would have moved in leaps and bounds in your relative life.

It is like spending your life doing everything else people expect of you, but then spending three relative lifetimes doing the things you always wanted to do.
