AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

It's a Red Island!

Can verse become Pop Art?

Get in the red

Banking curse

Get in the red

Only well-oiled

Get in the red

The virgin pan

And heat
The beat
To the red land

Your island
Red Island

The virgin pan

I hope verse and pop art don't mix, but you present an interesting poem. Excellent write. Luved the repition and the intersting concept. Luv red too.

Love the repetition! Stunning writing

So Pop distills everything down to a single dimension, one bright dayglo color translated here as Red. For all we do and sing and suffer, this red-labeled bottle of olive oil. Still, so much pours forth! - Brendan

That pretty picture, I love that process. Olive oil is one of my essential food every day.

This reads very much like Pop Art. Like the repetition of RED. Thanks for joining us at the pub.

can pop art become verse?

seasideauthor said...

Yes, I think a poem qualifies to be Pop Culture. This one for sure, everyone should have gotten stock 5 years ago in olive oil. I like RED.
RED anything...
