CURFEW 10

DAY 10 – Aug 12 the corporate world spins to a halt we turn at once to art to what’s important what flows from the heart simple things we did as kids painting drawing stitching knitting things we loved before we had to make a living be a grown-up before we had to toe that breadline push that margin juggling facts and figures KPIs and marketing numbers meetings rigour we put aside those childish things always itching yearning to get back to them some day when we had the time and hey! look at us now immersed in paint gunning glue decoupaging throwing pots mosaic-ing broken plates sales at Spotlight through the roof Bunnings running out of tools we’re baking bread and making jam occupations for our hands not heads this virus has unleashed a plague of ‘craft gene’ on the land.
