Moving In

Truck, utes, cars, people all
flowing to and fro along our
driveway shifting boxes, bags,
into the middle flat, lifting
furniture from trailer to carport
driving trailer back to street.

So much activity all day
people calling to each other
yelling loudly when something
is dropped. Grunting heavily
when a sofa is hefted along
by eight people all staggering
past my front windows.

Come eveningĀ  all is peaceful
we have new neighbours.
