Hullo! Woah — it’s December?! Christmas has infiltrated my living room already. (MY FAVOURITE THING IS WRAPPING PRESENTS. DON’T RUIN IT BY OPENING THEM.) In about two seconds, the year will be over and we’ll be coughing up dust from the fireworks. I just zoomed back from Adelaide, where this happened:
And since I did not meet my doom at the hands of this guy or his dragon fiend, I’ll be performing at the Wynnum Library this Thursday, with Ross Clark and Rob Morris. These gents are two of my favourite poets, and I count them both as friends and mentors. I toured Australia with Rob in 2009, and once upon a time Ross and I were known in some circles as Rocco and Spanki, poetic adventurers.
Here are the deets:
Where: Wynnum Library
When: 13 December, 6–7.30pm
What: Ross Clark, Rob Morris, Zenobia Frost and open mic
Cost: Free! Entirely freeeee!
Bookings preferred on (07) 3403 8888
Best of all, there will be wine and nibbles, and we’ll all be available to sign books, breasts, etc. I’ll be sampling from forthcoming publications, and debuting a suite of poems I wrote at Varuna, for my grandfather. No doubt we’ll all chuck in some old favourites. Fingers crossed Rob returns us to “The Cloudland Funicular Cha-Cha” — to a time “when the whole world wore hats.”
