Melbourne Summer Twilight



Melbourne, she gathers strength as she goes
But where has the pleasure gardens gone

The attitude and disapproval of forgotten times linger
No more holidaying for the diggers on the hunt for a bit of fun

Private enterprise will build the bridge

A wooden toll bridge
Bluestone and granite
Then removed replaced and reinforced

Finally, the possessive apostrophe was remove
The lost and whispering magnificence of 19th-century Melbourne

Celeste Dark Awake Beyond Understanding


Can you remember a time?
When society didn't use fear
When society didn't use hopelessness
To control your imagination
Your imagination to be obscure
Your imagination to be different

Neon Slug


Deception generated through want 
Propagated trust through beauty
Mimicry to attract predators
To manipulate their intended outcomes

To manifest concealment
Actively transmitting misinformation
Such militaristic cunning
Tasty yet noxious and toxic

Scratch Away All Unpleasantness



Seeing only a fraction of what could be seen
Saying far less than what needs to be said

Scratch away all unpleasant urges
Heighten sensation 

Inflict thoughtlessly
Until repulsion has been removed

Release your outward scream
Until repulsion has been destroyed

Then justify your behavior 
Until your actions are obscured

Celeste Dark Awake Beyond Parameters


Seeing yourself in darkness
Thick and impenetrable darkness
Anticipating what could and will happen
Indulging in the fate of horror
Cautious and alert
Inability to speak or think clearly
And beyond nurtured parameters
