orange as warm

orange as warm

saturday afternoon in bondi becalmed

warm grey windy day

think of old times think of the past

think of the band think about music

a door opens to a warm rainy summer somewhere then

but it can never take me back in

memory fade slow burn out to pure white in negative black

no avail no avail

girls clomph thru bondi in high wedge shoes

they look like galloping hippopotami

as they race up Campbell Parade hailing a cab

the place is packed with cars ice cream chips fish gulls swimmers

kids dogs bouncers spruikers deadbeats hippies spaniards

swedes by the bucketload yibber yabbering up Hall Street

cops and beggars and looneys and saints

inside the shops do the jostle

buy a slurpee or  a surfboard or board shorts or wetsuit

you want thai food haircut manicure pilates tattoo?

you want frozen yoghurt gelato full cream haagen norgen NZ ice?

you want cigs wigs coats clothes bikinis wax brazilian mexican vietnamese ?

you want hustler fumbler crook and society bitch in her black land crusher 4wd

you want surfer graffiti skater biker bikie surfie grommet and boob jobs?

you want botox shots parking ticket bottle shops prams tourists ?

you want celebrities nobodies somebodies has beens never was?

you want salt sand umbrellas pines palms g-strings tits n ass?

you want cafe bar restaurant brunch tapas aioli rocket boutique beer?

you want phony flaky lousy silly awful funny curious blase fucked up?

you want real estate agent and waverley council ranger?

you want one way street you want eternal construction machine?

you want home renovation all around the street and wild parties?

you want rich man poor man bored man thief?

or what?

me …i just dont care at all…

    nah, I don’t care much for any of that stuff either!
    patience is a virtue, can be hard to have sometimes
    in this world of things on demand, of instant gratification
    but all good things come to those who wait
    and according to the merits of the heart…
    I remind myself that most of what I need is quite close to hand

    speeding on a bon di tram
    heading for backpacker mecca
    with a falafel in his hand
    and a cold roll under his heart
    the hips stir the shoppers
    and the crazies mix it up:
    carousel me and moo a nordic fusion
    while the coolies sip it
    in the lightbulb lounge
    and the yellow bung ga low

    while in a back street
    the scented strands of Krishna
    and Saraswati weave a psychedelic dream…

    I would absolutely hate all that. Too much…much too much.
    If I ever come for a visit, I think it’s going to have to be in the winter…it would probably still be overwhelming for me, but it seems it would be much less so than in the summer. You really captured that overwhelmed feeling — I actually felt my skin start to crawl reading it — so as uncomfortable as reading it made me feel, it was also great the way you were able to capture that feeling so well for me.

    Do you know what the fireworks that just went off there were all about?

    Her Vamp Empire

    Sat in my room with a sense of doom when she waked in with a smile on her face as she lifted her skirt and began to flirt with the idea of losing her grace

    Every time she comes around and elevates off the ground in a way that you don’t understand and announces she’s your wife but will take your life as she murmurs those same old chants

    Go higher and higher and higher and don’t you stop…
    Cos if you do you body will surely rot

    She’s the queen of perception but her art is deception as she takes you gently into her arms and whispers in your ear everything you want to hear till nothing could ever seem wrong

    Go higher and higher and higher and don’t you stop…
    Cos if you do you body will surely rot

    Consumed with self doubt I looked for a way out and another goddess to pray but that little old vamp still continues to chant making it louder ever single new day

    Go higher and higher and higher and don’t you stop…
    Cos if you do you body will surely rot

    Curious George (the same envious little moron as ever was) | 10 February 2013 at 7:56 pm #

    Quick question, why did you always rail against bush as a hitler like war criminal but obama and his drone killings around the world get a free pass? Also, in america there are 265 abortions for every gun death but one gets your attention and the other ho hum who cares?
    quick answer ,i dunno moron…why do you hang around asking questions expecting consistency from someone like me? i guess i am a drug addled old hypocrite and you are the envious sad little stalker of a drug addled old hypocrite. hows that ,little pig?

      Curious George | 10 February 2013 at 9:49 pm #

      Why so venemous and personal Steve? You cannot be questioned in any way without your ego feeling the sting? Jesus man, lighten up a bit. This used to be a fun place for discussion in real time with no censorship. Now if you are not a Kilbey yes man you are ostracized like a leper or censored. Life is short. So I don’t march in lockstep with you. Big deal. That doesn’t mean that I don’t love you and your music. Honest question was why did bush get your wrath but why does obama get a pass? This question makes me a little pig?

    I need a hug ,steve, life is meant to be enjoyed bro. Love you man.I’m taking it all too serious. Running around stalkin’ folks in the net. Not cool.
    i guess i am an envious little person with no life except to make up these silly aliases and write the same things over and over. I like to imagine I’m really upsetting you with my same old tiresome trivial comments . God if only I had a life.Of some kind. Because being this… is pathetic.Nevertheless I will go on grasping at straws in an attempt to get revenge upon you steve, my ex hero. Why are you my ex hero, steve? In what way did you sleight me? In what way did you hurt my delicate feelings one day? Were you rude to me at a gig? Did you reject a tape of my songs? Did a female acquaintance remark upon your good looks? Did you frown at me accidentally once in the crowd as i sought to worship you? Well I cant say can I ? You’ll all have to go on guessing the source of my cowardly bitterness and envious malice! please allow me this, in this miserable life, it gives me something to do.

    I can’t wait for “You are Everything.” I sense your excitement about it, am intrigued by the snippets I heard, and generally have a very good vibe about it. Still enjoying Idyllist quite a bit. I like how varied it is.

    Where you live sounds like a paradise to me. It’s so damp and gray and chilly where I am now.

    I hope Sam is doing OK in this difficult time.

    Bondi sounds like Cocoa Beach except you guys have prettier water and bigger sharks.

    Don’t mind the touists. They remind me what we take for granted – they work so hard all year to escape their snowy prisons and be here for a week or two. I love seeing them enjoy the beach.

    Babies with their first taste of salt water and their sense of wonder as the frothy waves wash over them. Crimson skinned sunbathers who will suffer tonight. The occasional disheveled homeless man wrapped up like a mummy having slept all night on the beach, staring at the revelers with gaunt, hungry, weary eyes. Surfers, beach walkers, drunks, teen age lovers and fishermen…a motley mix of humanity around whom the shore birds dance, scanning for crumbs.

    Greedy gulls, stalwart white royal terns with black feather helmets lined up like little soldiers, gangly hopeful herons, delicate sand pipers. Pelicans fly in precise formation and crash dive into the waves. Transparent blue jellyfish wash onto shore to sting some hapless stroller. Every now and then a few graceful dolphin glide past.

    Infinitely variable and creative sand sculptures, crude but lovingly formed. Mermaids with seashell eyes and bikinis, seaweed tresses, and flowers in their hair…sandsculpted sharks, turtles, alligators, and of course the ubiquitous forts.

    It’s all endlessly entertaining.
