As performed today at the Perth Poetry Club.
My Self, who art in my head,
hallowed be my name.
My wisdom come,
my will be done
in life as it is in my head.
I give me today my daily fun.
Self, forgive me my sins
as I forgive those who sin against me.
Lead me sometimes into temptation
and deliver me a cheese pizza.
For my person,
and the glory are mine,
now and forever.
Had a lovely time (as always) as the Perth Poetry Club today. Chris Arnold and the Scrutineer of Splodge were very entertaining as MCs, and Jamie MacQueen made sure that nobody missed out on the wordy goodness by streaming everything live onto the web. He streams a lot of spoken word events on his livestream channel, Perth Live – brilliant idea, because you can’t always get to everything, but this way you don’t have to miss out.
Jamie – when he’s not Facebook/Myspace/Twitter/texting at a speed that would put sixteen-year-olds to shame – also takes photos, and (finally) showed me his photos from the 2010 WA Poetry Slam finals. Here’s one:
DVS, me, Kate Wilson, and ol' Pintface Belowsky.
