The Kurilpa Poets’ ‘Unsuspected Artist’ for November,
known to the Art World only as ZEL,
has broken his austere Vow of Silence to issue
a short communique on this, the Event, of one of his
rare appearances. For like the fabulous Phoenix of Legend,
or the humble Cicada of Summer, the ZEL is a creature
whose long periods of torpor are broken by rare appearances
to the surface world we inhabit.
We re-print the statement in it’s entirety;
Zelico Maric was born in Croatia and grew
up in Mount Isa.
I DO IT BECAUSE IT IS F UN.
A hungry dog
chewed on the bones
On the seashore of desire.
