Y (September)

Y is the river come down from Otways after a week’s rain on W-structures and E-structures lodged into hillsides, the remaining houses staring down gullies and out to sea at torrents. Y is the split in slopes of Paddy’s Path, gone under the Ocean Road into containment walls, ready to widen into watered W’s, collapse into layers of earthen E’s, the Road closed. Y is the loader bucket shifting soil and stone, while Workmen and Engineers move about, excavating hillsides that in December were on fire and September went under flood. Y is the silent street turnoff at Separation Creek.
