Ode to Fight Club

I am watching TV on a PC
I am the flickering computer screen
I am individual letters on a motherboard
I am a cursory glance of the room
I am the kitchen sink
I am the curtainless window
I am a red velvet coat
I am an op-shop scarf
I am black stomping boots
I am ready
I am compelled to take action
I am enraged
I am a clammy droplet of sweat
I am vitriol
I am mascara-stained eyes
I am cursing the day we met
I am trapped in body
I am disembodied thought
I am the front door
I am walking out the door
I am walking
I am on a road to nowhere
I am walking away
I am nowhere
I am nothing
I am lonely
I am altogether alone
I am unknown shops
I am the consumer
I am my complete lack of surprise
I am saying hello how are you
I am likewise
I am offering goodbye see you soon
I am smirking as I know we won’t
I am my firm footsteps
I am walking nowhere
I am considering running
I am thinking of flight
I am prepared to fight
I am at the botanical gardens
I am the metal seat
I am sitting
I am not the tree
I am not the leaf plunging from the tree
I am not the leaves in the grass
I am not the grass
I am not the ants
I am not the bees
I am walking again
I am nowhere
I am nothing
I am lonely
I am altogether alone
I am unknown
I am nowhere
I am going nowhere
I am going regardless
I am gone

Artist's Description

Gotta love Fight Club
I Am Jack’s Inflamed Sense of Rejection
I Am Jack’s Complete Lack of Surprise
I Am Jack’s Medulla Oblongata
I Am Jack’s Smirking Revenge
I am Jack’s Raging Bile Duct
I Am Jack’s Broken Heart
I am Jack’s Cold Sweat
I Am Jack’s Colon

And Talking Heads – Road To Nowhere

WELL WE KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOIN’
BUT WE DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’VE BEEN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE’RE KNOWIN’
BUT WE CAN’T SAY WHAT WE’VE SEEN
AND WE’RE NOT LITTLE CHILDREN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE WANT
AND THE FUTURE IS CERTAIN
GIVE US TIME TO WORK IT OUT

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride

Feelin’ okay this mornin’
And you know,
We’re on the road to paradise
Here we go, here we go

We’re on a ride to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride

Maybe you wonder where you are
I don’t care
Here is where time is on our side
Take you there…take you there

We’re on a road to nowhere
We’re on a road to nowhere
We’re on a road to nowhere

There’s a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
and it’s all right, baby, it’s all right

And it’s very far away
But it’s growing day by day
And it’s all right, baby, it’s all right

Would you like to come along
and you could help me sing this song?
And it’s all right, baby, it’s all right

They can tell you what to do
But they’ll make a fool of you
And it’s all right, baby, it’s all right
[x2]

We’re on a road to nowhere


This is the poem I’ll have in a new app by The Red Room Company for its Disappearing project

The Disappearing is an innovative new project that (literally) explores poetry and place. The Red Room Company presents The Disappearing, a new app for iPhone, iPad and Android devices that has created a poetic map charting traces, fragmentary histories, impressions and memories.

Beginning with a collection of over 35 poems about Sydney, The Disappearing will stretch across Australia during 2012.

Along with previously unpublished poetry, The Disappearing features exclusive videos of readings and interviews with poets.

Users can upload their own poems to The Disappearing, preserving ideas, emotions and experiences about their own environment that vanish over time.
