shit & death is everywhere
except around K Rd
retro paradise of alcoholic angels
& prophets of semen redemption

its skyline has the colour of Timothy Leary’s rainbow
guarded by clean-shaven Dunhill-smoking Tae-Bo-practising Herculeses
carefully assessing the initiates to the temples of Zeus

the gods come down from the heavens
every holy Friday night to K Rd
& t-shirt-wearing gymnast-mortals
dance for them the sacred dance
of the ecstatic whirling dervishes
160 km/hour
obladi oblada life goes on, yeah…

Friday is the holiest night of the week
the most blessed
& nobody talks of shit & death
on this perfumed communion of alcohol & semen
obladi oblada oh lala…

let us go to K Rd then, you & I
while the evening is still spread out against the Sky Tower
like a Holy Virgin intoxicated upon a bar table


*-Charles Bukowski is a dead American poet. One of his stories was made into a famous movie called Barfly.
-K Rd is the red-light-cum-nightclub-district of New Zealand’s biggest metropolis Auckland.
-The Sky Tower is its late postmodern respond to Las Vegas casino’s challenge & the highest building around the South Pole.
