Melbourne poetry fans, take note! I’m booked for a 10-minute slot at Passionate Tongues on Tuesday 3 September (7:30pm at The Brothers Public House, 42 Johnston St, Fitzroy) and hope to be included in the open mike at the Dan Poets Anthology Launch and maybe at POSTY and whatever else might be happening.
In the dream, he tells me he doesn’t need a condom
(From The emptied bridge)
In the dream, he tells me
he doesn’t need a condom
he has his book. In the dream, we’ve both
read it. Condoms are a manifestation
of Capitalism. A Bad Thing. Probably
made by Monsanto. We don’t
need them. We can use our minds
to divert the sperm. In the dream
I know it works, if done
together. We have to trust.
I can’t. Yet
in the dream, we don’t
have a condom
to our name.
