Le pont Mirabeau

Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine
            Et nos amours
      Faut-il qu'il m'en souvienne
 La joie venait toujours après la peine

enter stage left

The weeping fig that now
obscures the entrance to
the amenities block was
planted to commemorate
a centenary of curator-led
limited edition culture
projects that allowed old
gold prospectors — even
when bonsaied — to still
find the role of their dreams
in a candidate tight market.

The stillness of death
ranges over this vast
plain. I am at a cross-
road in my contiguous
physical map; any
therapy seems only
to have adverse effects.

The shape of the time
interval is less recogniz-
able, imposes limitations
on the raster & vector
datasets already open for
business just across the
street from the condo

development. 95% of
all cats will become
ecstatically attached to
any thing hollow or over-
hanging. Whole kernel
corn right out of the
can is a treat for catfish.

cortisone dance shoes

I have a plastic tub full of different
white-colored duplex printers.
The walls behind them carry
varities of tamper resistant out-
lets. Nothing is left to chance. From
the color mode menu select black
& white. This will produce tints of
fresh-fallen snow & baby's breath.

Gypsophila has long been a favorite
at weddings, though now falling
slightly out of favor because it's
non-toxic to dogs as well as some
generic anti-perspirants. Rhubarb
is a wonderful addition to the pie.

Cabinet dumps Clean Energy Target for new 'affordable, reliable' power plan now available because an out-of-control Chinese space lab is hurtling towards Earth · fanged kangaroos lived for longer than previously thought, await Victorian vote on assisted dying · mountain collapse may prompt Kim Jong-un into dealing marijuana at Melbourne Girls College · Aussie scientists react to Today's Lisa Wilkinson leaving Channel 9 for 10's The Project after wage talks break down. Say it was a faint signal, but it told of one of the most violent acts in the universe, & would soon reveal secrets of the cosmos, including how gold was created.

a reverse threaded GriGri

I use a magic X system
on which work pieces
are mounted, each one
having its own skill
system. The anchor isn't
equalized. No rope or
webbing means no swift-
water rescue. But the
system is a resurrection
of the ancient first person
so you soon get com-
fortable navigating in
such a restricted fashion.

wreckage of the shadow

Renaissance is alive &
thriving this year. No-
thing else to touch it for
style or energy. Disassembled
birds — hallucinatory, peri-

lous as a minefield — set
faces to grimace, then set
out to create epic doom
metal albums from flat
unpolished non-metal

surfaces that carry no
images of the world
around yet still reflect
the importance of set-
ting up a mise-en-scène.

Today the
postman brought
me a considered
rebuttal of John
Knox's The First
Blast of the Trumpet
Against the Monstrous
Regimen of Women
. He
was pleased it was
finally finished,
had taken him
nearly 450 years
to do so. Was dis-
appointed so much
bigotry remained.
