jungle city 04

The text from the film I recently completed in Brisbane:

 

Jungle City

 

I jitterbugged into jungle city

a shimmering delirium

of clustering geometries

splicing clouds in a black light sky

 

I was lost on my way to Indooroopilly

to catchapied Butcherbird

or catchapied Currawong’s

silvery cry

 

I was babelling in babylon

foaming in the firmament

tentatively teetering

on bridges made of fire

 

I was frozen in motion

muttering in monotones

shuddering and shaken

on ice-grass shards

 

I was deafened by an opera

of caterwalling cockatoo

sirens of apocalypse

splintering the dusk

 

I was dangled like a bat

from my outermost extremities

hung drawn and quartered

by the sorcerer’s musk

 

I was a rainspattered poltergeist

a dislocated entity

swollen in a heat haze

of blood hungry flies

 

I was swerving into vertigo

oblivious to reasoning

vanishing at knife point

in a mirage made of lies

 

I jitterbugged in to jungle city

a shimmering delirium

of clustering geometries

splicing clouds into black light skies
