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!

ELEANOR JACKSON- KURILPA Feature Poet, Sunday 26th October

The Kurilpa Poets

present;

Eleanor-Jackson in Black and White

Eleanor Jackson

Our October Feature Poet

Sunday, October 26th, 2014, 2pm

Abandoned as a baby on the banks of the Amazon,

Eleanor Jackson was raised by a family of friendly pythons,

from whom she learnt not only her Poetic skills

and the languages of the animals,

but also the gift of Prophecy.

Her Poetry has been described as being quiet, powerful,

and lucid to the point where several have achieved Sentience,

and gone Feral, scuttling off into Brisbane’s

lush, sub-tropical undergrowth.

There they will undoubtedly lay eggs at some future date.

Whatever hatches, it is certain to cause demarcation disputes

between Zoologists and Librarians.

Eleanor herself has appeared at so many Festivals and Venues around Australia, (from Tasmania to Queensland and everything in between), been broadcast on so many Radio Stations

and published in so many respected Journals,

that one suspects she has possession of a Time Machine.

Miss E also collaborates with known associate, Betsy Turncoat,

in the shadowy “Helles Belles” Poetic-Terrorist group.

So come and see Eleanor Jackson

and her amazing Performing Poems!

At the Olde Croquet Club

91 Cordelia Street, West End

beneath the treees of sacred Musgrave Park.

from 2pm.

Pay $5 at the door and pay no more!
