The Original Dirt-Bag Motion Detector Demonstration Model

By Colin James


Like so many previous
ends of the world, 
this is no different.
The roof has a barbwire parameter.
Five will get you ten, 
ten will get you five and so on.
Entertainments have been limited to
a series of unspectacular alley-oops.
One nightclub managed to remain
open, if I were you
I would not attend
any forthcoming events.
Nothing personal badges
should be worn at all times.
Side view of a welder.
The inflorescence of a flower overdue.


Beautiful where did all the colour go painting, 1992, spin painting by Damien Hirst.
