SUPPORT SYD VICIOUS
CUT A SLUT

JESUS SAVES AT THE WALES

WHO ARE YOU IF YOU’RE NOT?

CREAMINESS CONTROLS YOU
OR YOU CONTROL THE CREAMINESS

screaming without words
she runs through the tunnel
straight at them
shock opening like flowers
on the faces of the oncoming
motorists
her purple dress is ripped
to the waist so it has
become skirt only
her bare round creamy breasts
assault the pity
& the rapist
behind the many
masks of ‘motorist’
her face is contorted in
the scream everything
in her life is concentrated
behind it

she is either stoned out of her mind
just raped
so hopeless in her life
that whatever happens
will be better
drivers make
stories up
to fit some fiction
to the picture

it is 12 o’clock noon tube
white fluorescent
inside the road tunnel
she is running on
into the citybound traffic
cars part noiselessly
around her the traffic
streams into the city &
her bare feet & bare
breasts & scream
continue outwards towards
rushcutters bay & later
on to rose
bay if she makes it

drivers leaving the tunnel
blink at the sunlight
her image is off
their eyes but she is running
inside them as they enter
the city
all day they wonder
did somebody
rape her? again?
did she find
shelter?

her feet were busted
by the road – they were
bleeding
did some christ-of-the-tunnel
get out of his car
& kiss & wash her feet? risking
causing a chain
of deaths

to do so?

she is gone… going home
through the tunnel
drivers see
SUPPORT SYD VICIOUS CUT A SLUT’s
become ‘feminised’:
SUPPORT C.S.R. ROT
SYD VICIOUS WITH SUGAR

& JESUS FUCKS AT THE WALES
WHO ARE YOU IF YOU’RE NOT
MY GREAT AUNT FANNY

a female
form
its flesh & rags
in fragments
sea-sucked
purple
is fished
out of the
gap-
wash by the calm
voice-of-the-evening-news
a fortnight later
