Gas Crisis

By | 2 February 2001

The day after the election John Howard won:
a hot air balloon fiesta in Albuquerque;
novelty balloons shaped like Nikes.
As for giant global ads

I’d rather giant hot air cocks.
In Osaka they have breast-rub coffee shops
catering to the bald market.
I don’t drink coffee.

They don’t like hair in Japan
(re: pubic erasure in pornography).
In Japan, cleaning the men’s bath,
I found a hair wrapped around a tap;

I went crazy in Japan.
I’ve just been to Tonga;
I drank a lot of tea in Tonga
and shaved quite regularly.

Now, some other facts.
Breast-rub coffee shops evolved from panty-free coffee shops.
Forty percent of Tongans are Mormon.
Anything I say I’m going to do I never do.
