The lines behind my brow

The lines behind my brow


The lines behind my brow
Fizzed then – and how,
As strong as these same lines do here and now.

Equally global for needling cloth together…
Phat’n’ phunky and grouped into 8’s, 3’s, 24’s or ‘mores’ for the back-ends of electric wire connects…
Wrapped co-axially for unbelievable power communication cross cultures…
Bent in Spring to drive time pieces…
Soldered and Pumping multi-message…
Readying the Suburban Universe of Interactive TV Jockeys…
Putting an equal foot on your stairs for Tribal grit…
Totally Trashing the growth in forest devastation…
Aiding Fusion of the F1ip Resource…

Holding back and holding in …
I place my finger
Like a pin,
On random lines
Not on the web
But running round
Within my head.

Theatre Design

I’ve been sitting too long today doing a set design project, so tomorrow I’ll get out into the cool 9 degrees C. and work off the extra few grams that are still lingering after a second helping of Christmas pudding on New Year’s Eve.

But before I meet tomorrow’s chill, here’s something a bit chilly from the book “The Development of the Theatre” by Allardyce Nicoll (3rd Edn. Pub. 1948 by George G. Harrap). It is a set design for a production of ‘Macbeth’ in New York and it looks strangely like the front freestanding part of my set design for a production of ‘Farndale Avenue … Macbeth’ at the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham which I’ve included at the base of this blog.  It would be kinda spooky if I didn’t realise that originality is merely undetected plagiarism.
