Review: Blue

Review: Hidden

This arvo I had a chat with alicia sometimes and Clementine Ford (no relation) on RRR’s Aural Text. I gushed and mused (mushed? gused?) at them about Mirranda Burton’s Hidden, a beguilingly gentle and deft collection of stories about her

Quelle Grammage!
happy with today’s random encounter. he came home with me ma - can i keep ‘im? ps they don’t write liner notes like that any more. “The first few moments on land are always disorienting. I need a moment to adjust to the air warming against my skin and the unfiltered light coming in straight lines from the sun.” that one time i wrote one poem about #björk’s “Alarm Call” the miracle of the talking camel. it’s telling them to bury brother-saints cosmas and damian together because damian did not break his vow and accept three eggs as payment for medical services rendered.
