Roundtable of friends
Sharing food binds the spirit
Come closer he said

For Amanda

Ian Row
Porn in the background
helps me think... get the words out
I'll get back to ya

Into pupil black
Seeking a charred thought long gone
Yet present, darn it!

Damien Norris
Sad, replaced, and lost
she wanders old and in pain.
Friends dazzled by new.

Your last chance to get it right
Please don't fuck it up

be careful what you wish for.
things you can't take back.

Cough, flutter and blow
Spring Cold

capitalists fast become
socialists in strife

Concatenations find a home
In Yellow search.

a text message
a foot short of an olive branch
i will not beg


Two haiku about two Melbourne Fringe Festival 2008 plays

i.New World Order
Treatment: Shakespearean
Metaphor massaged by language,

ii.Halfway across the River
Concept: Living death
Unfetterred by its form,
a story is sold.

REM means you're sleeping,
maybe travelling.

I watch her drowning
yet fight the urge to rescue
lest she swim again.

Seller tries it on. You can't.
