The top of the city is feuillemort today. The feuillemort health centre, feuillemort cinema, and the Hill of Content. The trees are alive with feuillemort branches and seedpods. Feuillemort, a French adjective “having the colour of a faded, dying leaf”, apposite for Anzac House and the gay Paris End of Collins Street. St. Patrick’s spires are feuillemort all year round, poking up for all to see above the matching feuillemort Parliament House. August is about as feuillemort as it gets in Melbourne, as people on trams talk into their wires about resorting to paper now the Census site is dodgy.
