the chrysalis
broken drought
silent rebellion
ghosts of the living
atom to the planet
girl called novella
superhumane


beauty in the world

beauty in a raindrop sucked in by parched land
sizzle on the rust tin roofing of the grain shed
truck roar in the distance gear sound of a movement
shiny global silver homogenised sun beams
stirring of the potty calf crowing of the rooster
exposed dirt the new curse low drone of the future
gum trees lean in pre-crack iron gates in time warp
systematic struggle a battle for the old world
rustic landscape seeks rain - a hundred million allies
blank line a deposit cheque fruitless seasons zeros
this plough and sow chronology - an analogy of my love

safe with you my friend
i feel adored and reassured
that thereís beauty in the world

push the pen of black again stem the blood of red ink
overdraft the overland dream the harvestís new day
sun behind the clouds now silence bar the cowís cry
milk of flavour in my mouth something that i canít taste
pure brimmed thick cream, no processed nutrimetics
see you after many years blonde without cosmetics
scarifier fights the ground my heart a water table
salt crusts lips oxidised the flow of pipes is way down
breeze blows through gum leaves promise of the horizon
a clouded man needs release - a hundred million allies
this sow and grow chronology - an analogy of my love

and safe with you my friend
i feel adored and reassured
that thereís beauty in the world

a black dog comes seeking affection
in fear of the bite my self preservation
the dog vanishes with a tale of dedication
and i am alone with thoughts
of drying earth again

4 wheel drives up dust storms drama from a coffee cup
shadows on this step stone wooden door of my age
baked clay of my heart a house of disused contents
silver car of global fleets comes to hold me to account
questions of the future dreams of gold canola
this water fade proof ink seeks a hundred million allies
this grow to harvest chronology - an analogy of my love

for safe with you my friend
i feel adored and reassured
and iím breathless at your beauty
your beauty in the world...
