i’m appearing in a tv commercial to promote the university.
i am no actor, something learnt yesterday.
i just read a murakami story about a giant frog saving tokyo. it battles a giant worm, & thus tokyo is saved. i gave away the ending.
the paradise anthology is launched in melbourne, somewhere, sometime, i think on the 5th of february. i should link that i guess. i can’t be in melbourne, but the book will feature one of my poems, so give it a read. i believe my poem may well be in the wrong section of the book, & it is similarly likely that it was never considered for the ‘best poem’ prize. but who cares, i had no editorial stake in the venture.
gonna go make some coffee.
