Podcast of a radio show I presented on KSFM, a community radio station in Parys, The Free State, South Africa. This is a show features Cool Covers – so if jack White singing Dolly Parton, Chris Cornell covering Michael Jackson and other sweet sounds appeal to you .. enjoy .. 🙂 If you want me to post the detailed playlists for the shows please let me know.
NOTE: if you trying to spot the relevance of this Cover Pic, its Bob Dylan covering the classic crooners … I will take everybody opportunity to punt the Master – #BobDylan
Another lust-filled homecoming poem – dedicated to my love ♥
your ravenous desire
sucks the air from my lungs
oh, our reckless desire
we are burning up
turn the flames up higher
feel the heat, the beat
keep the fire burning
that moment when we meet
let me feel your desire
tonight, my love
I will have you

like shifting desert sands
rules keep changing
keeping the leash short
work hard, be honest
play by the rules
it all comes to naught
they fuck you over
hung out to dry
despite playing fair
they don’t care
you still fucked
Podcast of a radio show I presented on KSFM, a community radio station in Parys, The Free State, South Africa. A genre of music I affectionately call swamp rock – the purists might argue that I might have strayed from the specific confines of this genre, but that is after all my poetic licence 🙂 … enjoy the tunes. If you want me to post the detailed playlists for the shows please let me know.
travelling into my space
that road oft travelled
neither visitor or tenant be
just passing by
stopping to stare
donning spectacles of perspective
discovering what lies beneath
as I a passer-by be
dream or dead space?
haunted by conversations
of those who reside on yonder
neighbours they not be
in transit, not overnighting
reading what lies beneath
obligated to document
that others might believe
A series of pictures I took last week, whilst out on my mountain bike in The DRC (Africa), reminded me of a barren wind swept post apocalypse, dystopian landscape. The pictures are of a mine waste dump, so the soil is lifeless, the water is questionable at best, and the wind whips up the waste product into dust clouds that hang in the air, and distort the horizon.
These images have nudged my mind to craft a short story – what do they do for you? what emotions do they evoke?
