THE 2010 COLLECTION

Butterflies don’t tumble

they beeline…

welcome to:

the philosophical waste track


**********


1)DEPTH OF EMOTION (OR SHALLOWNESS)

Gliding over the water, skimming the surface, leaving behind me a long elongated v ripple as my wake.

The dizzying heights, lucidly reeling with that prehistoric fear.

Deep in the primordial cave, a sense of being inside the essence of everything, everything in this one breath clarified (like ghee) and understood… the ancientness of time as stalagtites-and-mites yearn for limestone union.

2) THE LIGHT OFF CONCRETE

The fashion for up-lighting, in shades of pink and blue, and all the shades in between, is beginning to wane as in this recession the trend is for mad cheer day-glo neon lighting every dull coloured, but so seen to be at, place.

…but the moonlight

…and the rare hot sun

…and the pure snow white out.

3) LIVING THE LIE

It’s been a sleepless night.  So far, it’s been a guilt ridden journey, as at 4.25 am the hope and angst combine in a heady mix:  the hope that he won’t be found out, that the fantasy will tangle up forever, and the angst that the guilty verdict is obviously inevitable.

Flip side mercy, please make it gentle, he shivers.  Every time the eye contact is too lingering, he shivers.  Cannot maintain this.  Gonna break.

4) THE SHADES BETWEEN PINK AND BLUE

Where the sun dips, hazy behind-the-horizon illuminations shoot silver arrow mirages upwards.

Far up, the baby blue shades to ultramarine.  A gradation which, though it only takes minutes to pass into twilight, takes up hours of his mental thinking.  All these hints and hues of blue, with red watercolours permeating.
