All Dreams


All dreams begin as this
To form the vision
To have the passion
To enter with courage

Then the enabling
What is sky and what is earth
Who is hunted
Who controls

Sleep close to your followers
Simulate their world through your imagination
Listen, embark and transform
Disregard those who will not be influenced

Vision, What, Who, Simulate, Transform

The Spire



The power thrust has diminished us all
Oh almighty father
So few with so much wealth

Tales of danger
Fear, loathing, and division

My life has been lost to this
I'm constantly reminded by that prick
Each and every sunset

Tree removal


This majestic loss
between the fold of days
now gone and forgotten
Removed from our experience
and transpose into carbon waste
Given way

Celeste Once Gods in Armour


Red and white roses
A fortress through blood line
Noble in silk and commoner in rags
Determined power through inheritance

Once We Saw like Gods


Before all time began
Towards all simulated endings
We imploded
In the want of
And to see even more

Towers Light Pole and Flight


Before they arrive
You must flee
This is no-longer our safe place
The threat hasn't diminished
The urgency is evident
Make sure you have an evacuation plan
And take flight

Path of Flight


A manifestation of problems is about to piss down on me
This difficult situation is cloaked in nonsense
Encased by feral monsters with voyeuristic intentions
I am struggling to see the difference
In light of this, I take flight

Rapid Creek Tide Out


Trying to make sense of it all
When the tide goes out
And the rain stops
What was once seen is now not what is seen

All the way across the expanse
To the horizon
A revealed beauty
That is transient and formed
Flowing ebbing and eroding

Of continuous loss
As present
A simulation
Creation in place
And witnessed by my force in time

Once We Were Your Imaginary Gods



When I was your mirror
I was no less dangerous
I knew what it took
To be as yourself

Now I know how to protect
I know your empathy
I know your trust
I know your desires

Desecrated through impunity
Deep within
Where your monster resides
You are in fear of reconciliation
And of blame

Black Cockatoos Rapid Creek


As true majestic beings
Black cockatoos return to Darwin
To squawk and demonstrate
What belonging really means

Celeste Dark Awake Not Knowing


Sweet sickly toxic plume
From city to city cars are killing
Dead mouth
Deàd eyes
Push this mess away
The inconvenience and perversion

From Montpellier Park to the You Yangs


Beautiful sprawling Geelong
A veneer of suburbia each and every way
And all of that granite just 22ks north east
With distinct pyramid like peaks
Making the flat plains so much more

It has not always been this way
Station Peak Flinders Peak
A discovering with sheep
Reporting that the natives were unwilling to work
Waves of squatters drove off custodian resistance

Conflict
Aboriginal massacres
Procedural lack of evidence
Enforcement through denial of representation
Legitimizing colonial  right of way

Never to be officially documented
A systemic off the record ‘land grab’
Plunder and claim
Victim accounts reduced to word of mouth
Forever locked into what can be deemed acceptably plausible

Dogs must now be controlled
There are walking and trial bike trails
Picnic tables and toilet facilities
It is challenging and family-friendly
This, the now unquestionable modern day Australian landscape

Flagstaff Gardens Missing Statues


This is a matter of inference rather than direct seeing
Seven burials took place here
No evidence that the bodies were exhumed
What potential
If we want to understand it’s time to reinvent

We act as forgeries in the style of what we really want
Only to became redundant due to the introduction of a new technology
Then knowing we have been found out
We lack the  knowledge
Like fallen angles that lack life and emotional play

Taking the historicist position by what we forgot about it
Through the development of scientific knowledge
The colony of identity has been re-established
Normalised aura
To form once again - a unique existence in a particular place in time

This magnificent achievement that time has reshaped
To what is now less good, less beautiful, less awe-inspiring, less interesting
Our memories reliant on reward and monetary gain
Walk on by and think less about it
When none of the original statues exist, it nolonger matters.
