What a wonderful day today.
Exploring many of Melbourne’s laneways.
Odd retro shops that I never would have known were there
‘50’s dresses, cowboy boots,
Odds and ends – oh what a hoot.
Annie and I, our day in town.
She knows it well, has travelled up and down.
Knows where all the good graffiti is, the prints and art shops too.
Down little lanes, and up narrow stairs.
Retailers in their little lairs.
Funky little eateries,
The weirder the better.
Cups of tea and latte too
A tasty little platter
Of funky food for two.
I had my palm read near exhibition Street
$20.00 – why not? Sitting on a public seat
With people walking by.
A great way for an aging entrepreneur
To make a little on the side.
We have a tour booked later in the month
Of little known bars around the town.
Down laneways you not expect
That would be hard to find
If you were on your own.
