Shortly before moving to Melbourne I found a pile of hard rubbish. It was a kind of magical pile of hard rubbish.
In it I found:
• A painting of some sailboats on a lake in the bush
• A green malvern star bicycle
• A radioshack trs80 coco computer
The bicycle got me where I was going for years to come. In Adelaide I kept it in the backyard under a grapevine.
When I locked the bike up in the city I found that there were ants crawling on it after work each day. Maybe they were eating grape matter!
When I moved to Melbourne I found that a colony of ants had stowed away in the bike’s kickstand so I named the bike Uncle Milton. When I was a kid I had an Uncle Milton brand ant farm. The ant farm was green and full of ants, just like my bike.
