in luck & healthy love a dime a dozen
you cough into the street, expecting applause
to fill the silence, the text of your personality
falling backwards from the bestseller lists,
coffeeshops closing faster than ether & a staid trip
nagging at your fringes.
i found this artwork's approach to 'life' interesting:
remember occupational health & safety?
after the stack of videos you think will never end
the absence of emotion coalesces like a clock
forgotten in a cocktail lounge, then the network printer
runs out of toner, 18megs of upgrade
downloading from amerika.
utilitarianism is vaguely seductive, like a pig in a g-string.
wrapped in lycra your intentions swap kisses,
a balinese sunrise flapping on a poster
in the breeze behind them, saturday night
at the edge of redfern like a kind of homecoming,
cleveland street, chippendale,
tiny molecules of shadow & the perfect, blank walls.
