Grave Yard Shift -23/02/2010


With a quiet smile
the moment came
cutting out the last
of my CD covers
with a craft knife
with foggy eyes
in half light
lines permanent
left carved
into this desk's
dead of night.

type moment
feel the focus-pull
when life looks
your shot
picture yourself
to where you want to be.

While a world
carries on wailing
right outside the window

I know
that as long as
I have art to make
It's a given,

My chance
like having nine lives
at once
all of them,

Worth living.


Off to Adelaide again later this afternoon. I'm well overdue for a little road.

And I gotta score to settle with that town....
