Australia (January)

From Latin. Language of an empire. Former empire. Official. Faraway. South land. Seafarer dream. Imagined. Indeterminate. Cloud on a globe. Dragons. Great south. Ballast balancing the North. Theory abandoned after Isaac (laughing muchly) Newton (checking his apple watch). What was Matthew (first author amongst many) Flinders (of fragments, splinters) thinking? Nothing at all like Wales. Here be gryphons. As he ended the chart. Coast mostly. Or Holland. Blue mountains. January heatwaves. Determinate. Material. An island continent. Post-Sahul, shape of a tropical fish. As former empire thinks Scythia. The first provincials have other names. Had. We don’t know them. Do we?
