no wicked for the rest

no wicked for the rest

nature arranged at all its levels

meticulous and tuned

salt air rushes thru my murky flat

an expectancy as another storm approacheth

a vacant field where no building seems to have ever stood

with minimal undoing the undulating rain

in the shallow cave of an afternoon reverie upon my mind

the sky suddenly blackens as the parking expires

lying in bed with a thousand memories

treading the boardinghouses and the stage behind a laundry

in alleyways that connect our worlds

malcontent clouds unleashing into thimbles

empty vessels pouring into empty vessels

the heat when its all over discharged into vapour

in languid valleys i would long for

i surge to be out of this miasmic malaise

becalmed in the early saturday evening seas

i embody the time ravaged fool

adrift in the green and grey

headful of sea spray

    had a look at that auz morning show interview….
    you’re as casual and relaxed as can be…..and it seems to scare the shit out of them!
    what a pair of ill-informed dummies.
    still….a little bit of airtime does no harm does it?

      On a different scene … that depends on whose doing the breathing& if the air is clean.
      I thought interview was a bit short & rushed. &yes Kilbey handled it better w less pomp then I hav seen him xpress at other sit-ins.

    I know the Bondi beach area fairly well and am always impressed at the way SK coverts a hot sticky windy mess’o’tourists into a magical realm.

    I guess thats why he’s an alchemist.

    Otherwise, last night I discovered Tantalised at the Opera House on ytube. Most readers would no doubt have been there in person or in cyberspace but if not, go here to become breathless and joyful.

    Dualism… I like his T-shirt choices, always cool. I think SK has overworked himself & gotten a cold. Must stop analysing his Diary thingy 😉 Watching ‘Kingdom of Plants 3D’ it’s awesome! x
