sanctioned and amplified

(Perth, Western Australia, August 2011)

under the cameras
of Forrest Place

on gapless grey stone
more desert than desert

food comes in plastic
or drips with full-fat heat

street entertainment
is sanctioned and amplified

I wanted a
naked lunch
no powerpoint
no permit
apple cheese fresh bread
cracked acoustic voice
