Presenting the long lost photo-review of the July Kurilpa Poets Gig
VOX POPULI VOX DEI!
AUDIENCE TAKES PLACE
OF MISSING FEATURE POETS!
There was a certain element of chaos in the days leading up to
the Kurilpa Poets July Gig and the much anticipated appearance
of QLD Poetry Festival Supremo’s
David “Ghostboy” Stavenger and Anne Marie Te Whiu.
For the much feared “Kurilpa Quantum Worm-Hole”
appeared once more and swallowed this months Feature Poets,
as so many have been devoured before them.
Fortunately most of the Lost Poets are eventually disgorged at a later point in time.
Indeed, the Kurilpa Quantum-Mathematicians calculate
David & Annie will return to our space/time continuum around February 2016,
when they will appear as judges
for the Fabulous 2016 Kurilpa Poetry Cup.
But back in the not-so-distant past, after frantic but futile last minute attempts
to find a suitable stand in, the Reverend Hellfire instead
announced to the audience on the day,
that THEY were to be that days Feature Poets.
Yes, everyone who came forward to take the Mic were
henceforth designated the days Stars.
And Yeay! They rose mightily to the occasion!
Stepping forth to be our fabulous July Feature Poets therefore,
were (in no particular order);
Tony (Fats Parameter)K
The Loaded Dog
(If I’ve missed anyone let me know.)
All made sterling contributions to the day.
Newcomers to Kurilpa, Alvin and Wal, impressed the crowd muchly.
Wal was actually one of the old Bohemian Cafe crew back-in-the-day,
and his poem on the “Value of a Hug”
earned him a hug from the Reverend to general applause.
Jem Sparkles was once again Mystery Musician,
charming as usual all who heard her, and
accompanied by yet another of her “Golden Boys”
as musical accomplice/nameless minion.
The food was bountiful, the Vibe was mellow,
the new coffee machine, donated by our beloved Secretary,
John Treason, was hotly patronised.
All in all it was a lovely day.
I shall let the pictures tell the rest of the story.
See you all in September.
