CATAPULT

by Lachlan Philpott

"Now I’m further down the street and you are with me sitting like a puppy I push around in a pram. I sometimes wonder what it’d be like to stand at the top of a hill and push you gently from the top. If I ran behind and let you crash would you let me comfort you when you smashed your face. Which bit of your body would I keep if you were torn in half by a truck and how long would it be before I stopped pushing the empty pram around? You look straight ahead. I look left and right. Our eyes meet and one of us wants to turn the lights off. It changes who."

An examination of queer parenting and relationships from the perspective of six interlinked characters.
