About

2014 marked the seventieth anniversary of the arrival of New Zealand’s first refugees, more than 700 Polish children who were cared for at a specially prepared camp at Pahīatua, which led me to consider the terrible and dislocating movement of children in times of war. As I wrote this piece, two significant and dear friends – Peter Maxwell Davies and Jack Body – were terminally ill, so there are many interpretations of the title (which was taken from a Greg O'Brien poem).
