North Coast Town
Out beside the highway, first thing in the morning,
nothing in my pocket but sand
from the beach. A Shell station (with their Men's locked),
a closed hamburger stand
I washed at a tap down beside the changing sheds,
stepping about on mud. Through the wall
smell of the vandal's lavatory,
and an automatic chill flushing in the urinal.
Eat a floury apple, and stand about. At this kerb
sand crawls by, and palm fronds here
scrape dryly. Car after car now-it's like a boxer
warming up with the heavy bag, splitting air.
A car slows down and I chase it. Two hoods
going shooting. Tattoos and greasy fifties pompadour,
Rev in High street, drop their first can.
Plastic pennants on the distilled morning, everywhere;
a dog trotting, and someone hoses down the pavement;
our image flaps in the shop fronts; smoking on
past the pink "Tropicana" motel (stucco with sea shells);
the RSL, like a fancy dress Inca; the "Coronation",
a warehouse picture show. We pass
bulldozed acres. The place is becoming chrome,
tile facing and plate glass: they're making California
Pass an Abo, not attempting to hitch, outside town.
Whatever works for you!

TEACHING THE TEXT
Prescribed text: Poetry
Skrzynecki, Peter, Immigrant Chronicle, University of Queensland Press, 1975,
• ‘Immigrants at Central Station, 1951’
• ‘Feliks Skrzynecki’
• ‘Crossing the Red Sea’
• ‘Leaving home’
• ‘Migrant hostel’
• ‘A drive in the country’
• ‘Post card’.
1: Study of the poem ‘Post card’
Aim: to provide a task that will help students to verbalise ideas in the poem and capture the psychological tensions of the poem through the language of dialogue.
Task: After reading and initial discussion of the poem, students work in pairs to create a dialogue between the speaker and the postcard. The dialogue must be written as a script, using first person voices and expressing the conflicting perspectives of the poem. Students are not to just re-use the words of the poem but try to express the ideas in their own composed words. Students can perform the dialogue for the class.
Students must use the following words and phrases in their dialogue: journey, I feel, I need, you must.
Follow up task: After students have closely studied the poem, they could revise their dialogue and perform it for the class.
2: Study of the poem, ‘Crossing the Red Sea’.
Aim: to make the journey of migration more concrete for students and to elicit understanding of the political pressures which are referred to in the poem.
Task: Obtain maps of Europe pre-World War II and post World War II. Get students to locate the places mentioned in the poem and to trace the journey taken.
Follow this up with students researching post-war Europe (particularly Poland).
