Weekly poems from Adelaide South Australia southernexpressway by Dr.Neuage (Poem for May 02, 2000)
(see??? the earth didn't turn upside-down with seven planets in Taurus)
As far as I could imagine
was never far enough
to place me here.
I was prospecting in a small town up north
(Papunyu in the Northern Territory)
The circus had left a small tent behind.
I peeked inside, looking for adventure.
There was a gypsy sitting naked in front
of a crystal ball she was fondling.
She had my portrait tattooed on her breasts...
it was impossible not to notice - even for a man.
She said my future was mapped in my hands
would I put them on my portraits
I remembered her from some distant shore
(when we were children it was her dolls
I had sacrificed to Aphrodite
during mass and she never forgave)
I didn't want my future told
I knew where all the doors were
AND THAT IS ALL ONE NEEDS TO KNOW TO GET OUT
As I left the tent
I felt Chiron's hot laughter behind me
and turned just in time to watch the tent
disappear into the screaming mist
Before long I did forget it all
until tonight when my concupiscent concubines
came home and said a gypsy was looking for me
to tell my future
she was no longer smiling.
Now I know it is my end because I sacrificed
to the wrong god so long ago
like all men do to bring about their end

1. GRIN’s technologies: [Genetics, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and Nanotechnology (Joel Garreau)] impact on communicational evolutions; how will we translate meaning from sender to receiver if the ‘decoder’ is inserted in the minds of but a fraction of society? An extension to my PhD thesis: ‘Conversational Analysis of Chatroom “talk”’
2. Philosophical clashes between longevity (the race to extend life cycles without end) ~ reincarnation and traditional Christianity.
