“COMB THE SKY”

WITH;Feature Poet; Cathoel Jorss

Mystery Musician; Matt Barnes Unsuspected Artist; Zel

MC; Reverend Hellfire

 

It was a wonderous fair day indeed, a mellow vibe, fine verse, fine food, fine company. Feature Poet Cathoel Jorss’s Poetry bowled  over all who had ears to hear. I believe Cathoel sold all available copies of her book that day, even the water-damaged ones were fought over by the fans. If you can’t get a real copy of Comb the Sky for Satellites you can always get it in E-book form on the net. This reviewer says; Track down a Copy Today! You won’t regret..

The Open Mic was as diverse, bizarre witty and profound as always. Mr Matt Barnes soothed our cares away with the siren song of his six string, cherry-red slide guitar. Up on the Virtual Gallery screen Unsuspected Artist ZEL’s madcap visions swirled and squirmed.

A most pleasurable way to wind up 2014 I’m sure. I’ll say no more but let the pictures speak and finish with a poem 2013 Kurilpa Cup Winner, Tony “Fats Parameter” Kneipp wrote for the occasion, in celebration of our humble gatherings. Enjoy!

DOWN AMONGST THE POETS

In the shade of the sprawling fig tree

In a Park with so much history

The old Croquet Club calls us together.

A Word Salad and a sense of wonder

With music served as entrée

 The Reverend holding court as Jester and MC.

Free association and the occasional rants,

 Rap ballad posturings and poetic performance.

*

Half time break, smoke fills the rotunda

Cakes and cheese, tea and wine

A slide show presents a Surreal backdrop

To the clatter and chatter.

Another Sunday afternoon among friends.

-A.J. Kneipp
