Avatar, Hoyts Melbourne Central, 10 Jan

Go bush.
Walk slow.
Look up
let other walkers overtake.
Look down
drop your pack.
Knead your palms into the earth:
feel the heartbeat of footsteps
moving away.
Press your forhead to the mulch
the smell is cool, rich:
think of black forest cake.

Turn your head.
Feel your eyelashes brush
the gills of a rainforest mushroom.
See the world you're in.

Yes, it's the same sun
whispering in this fungus
as illuminates and softens bone china.
Each gill, no wider than your lash
is a structural beam
for that translucent cup.

It's a close up
in 3D.

No Pants Train Ride, Melbourne, 10 Jan

Eyelids barely bat
so we mob another train
then another
then another.

Next time
we'll do it in winter:
this summer it seems that everyone
is wearing only underwear.

Lovely Bones, Hoyts Victoria Gardens, 9th Jan

From the start
the family is so perfect
that I want to hurt them.
the movie does it for me.

Citizen Kane, The Astor, 3rd Jan

I've been told it's the greatest movie ever made
and wikipedia says so too
and it's good
it's fine
I liked it
but I can name a hundred books
that have kicked me harder.

What does that say
about film?

dualpLOVER, Horse Bazaar, 2nd Jan

experimental sound

So this is the popping squeaking
stopping tweaking
chopping swapping clopping whapping
post-op sounds
of the chin stroker’s urban jungle.
