An explanation

 

The houses are no
big deal        so
inflatedly self-important
         try things

         rapid deployment
except insofar as the politics of race is concerned
on a dull day
signs

         come down to earth
to villages in the hills, smoke
hovers over the coast
not that these aren't

qualities of lasting significance
I doubt they'll ever be
replaceable
and I said to Collie Hi honey!

and she said to me Hi handsome!
What's been happening in the interim?

Slash and burn
rip shit and bust

Altherm Aluminium Construction
Durney Construction

adulation
