Feature Poet Eleanor Jackson; the Woman in White

Twas a fine day and a fair crowd gathered

for the Kurilpa Poets’ October Word Happening

The usual suspects mingled with new faces,

as Eleanor Jackson, a cool vision in white

enchanted and charmed her audience,

with her quiet, but clear delivery, devoid of

any showy theatrics.

Visual Arts Supremo Shane K proudly displays his card-carrying affiliation with the shadowy Kurilpa Group

By contrast the Reverend Hellfire gleefully indulged

in his usual antics and thus, surely, a balance was reached.

The Open Mic poets

impressed as always with their intelligence,

sincerity and diversity. Surely the Open Mic sessions

are the “heart” of the Kurilpa Poets Word Happenings.

Up on the Virtual Gallery‘s big screen

the psychedelic visions of Brian Gilmore,

October’s “Unsuspected Artist

writhed and twisted, spat and gibbered.

Further twisted fare was served after the break

when Visual Arts Director Shane K, dished up

a veritable bevy of forgotten women surrealists.

Tony K’s politically subversive verse is the sort of thing that gives this group a bad reputation!
