  • Author's note: Irukandji are deadly box jellyfish which haunt the oceans in North Queensland.

    This poem was inspired by a conversation I overheard in a pub in the township of Yungarburra. As I understood it, the vocal man I overheard worked as a Ranger in the Cape York Peninsula.

    By Southern Indonesia I mean Australia.
