Ned Kelly Country

wild rose everything, cherry dr pepper, yellow and purple bush flowers, dams, pretty settler towns and stone cottages with verandahs, warm winds from the north that you only get in the backend of mid south Australia, kill bill churches, smells like childhood summers.

"I had this idea that we could be a home for each other, but maybe that's not right. Maybe a person can't do that for someone else. But people need a center...It was too much to ask you to give me that"

"I'd spent all this time and energy over the years searching for a home - and home for me, I was realising, was simply being close to my own ability to love".

For Poppit

I'm with you in Rockland
where you will split the heavens of Long Island
and ressurect your living human Jesus from the
superhuman tomb
I'm with you in Rockland
where there are twentyfive-thousand mad comrades
all together singing the final stanzas of the
I'm with you in Rockland
where we hug and kiss the United States under
our bedsheets the United States that coughs
all night and won't let us sleep
I'm with you in Rockland
where we wake up electrified out of the coma
our own souls' airplanes are roaring over the
roof they've come to drop angelic bombs the
hospital illuminates itself imaginary walls
collapse O skinny legions run outside O
starry spangled shock of mercy the eternal
war is here O victory forget your underwear
we're free
I'm with you in Rockland
in my dreams you walk dripping fom a sea-
journey on the highway across America in tears
to the door of my cottage in the Western night

Slow Ambition

"But I knew that to be the grown-up that I wanted to be, to be the adult I dreamed of being, I would have to have some other experiences besides just pretending to be other people in front of a camera."

Valley of the Dolls

"You mean you'd marry just anyone?"
"Not anyone. Just anyone who'd give me a nice beaver coat, a part-time maid, and let me sleep til noon each day".

Hold On

This song came on when I found this picture. Seemed to work.
