Time Passing -- A Miscellany of Poems; ŠThor May 1996 index

Invest in your city,
Imbibe your evenings
In the putrid gleam of ye olde Australian pub.
Ah, conversation, pine fresh, tender, mature
With aromatic smoker's cough.
Just spill it, sir, between the Harold Park placings
And the Vincent's aspro confidence plug.
We're people oriented now.
Grow tinea, a filthy fat wife, and six little social ulcers.
Consume today; hands out for the lucky-dip prize,
Root in your flexible trash can, folks.
