didgeridoo
Famed Aborignal Didgeridoo player Jedda Biralee strides to the stage resplendent in his reflective grey double breasted Armani suit.
Because didgeridoos are cool.
Anyway, Jedda draws his 12 foot didgeridoo with him, fitting it into into the carved dingo holders, the upturned mouth resting atop a sandstone representation of Wayamba, the turtle. The house lights dim as the spotlight stabs through the cloud of patchouli oil and clove cigarettes, drilling through the steam of designer espresso and picks out a man dressed in black ski jacket, black ski pants, black scarf, thick black glo- Look, he’s covered head to toe because he’s freezing, and his clothes are all black, ok?
Sheesh.
Anyway, Jedda blows a low heart-thrumming tone through the Didgeridoo as El Guapo comes to the stage…

*WvWvWvWvWvvvv*
Sparkling, reflecting, dazzling
shards of light that bounce
*VzVzVzVzVz*
carom
explode
across my eyes.
My breath belabored as I

breathe
inhale
exhale
of your
*ZwZwZwZw*
all…
encompassing…
domain…
*zvzvzVWVWVWvWvWzWzWZwvwv*
So overwhelmed.
So dwarfed.
When will it end?
vwvwvwvWVWVWz*
Will it ever end?
I can’t see an end.
I lean into you…
*vwz*
as I shovel the damn snow…
