an overload poem 2006

an overload poem 2006

brunswick overlords,
the way another brittle 5.30am sun
splits her pencil face; an etched stencil
like a beer-driven snarl now
our angel voices a feeble crack,

always massive rambling metaphors
subtle enjambment in the fitzroy streets

and the old bitumen bleeds transit poems
and the mad colours a gay rush of layers
a metaphysic neologism.

so melbourne in this new light:
a red wine-stain shaped like jesus
scant on the frontline we tread
a word, or two - another page of trams
