A poem by Marty "From A Collage" 1986 Print E-mail
Wednesday, 01 January 1986

This poem is in a collection published in 1986 called Blue Light Lounge. It contains poems by many different Sydney artists and has two contributions from Marty. One is the lyrics to Winter Splinter Bay, from his album In Reflection (and also on Art Attack)

From A Collage

Kiss me         I hate that feeling

youth in a factory     it is in England       strange land

blood contradiction    Ulysses         who was once        like a fiery saint

Days to replace that last few weeks       Do you believe in God?            no

my hands       by the wheels toruring the beasts of the field,

I think the best         these days as he    It's sad, but        ask him to RELAX

your fame has come           swing over the ring of cash

You don't sound        little dependence in the face of Streisand

in America, not so           A thing to be

I thought who bought my faithful heroes

love a star.       your own myth.      won't let me expand. I man, I

and from the dying embers season after season. You've got success I suppose

to think out of millions
