visual poem

driven to power
insatiable and inert
into a mixer

I've been helping with the Pupu Power Project - concreting the floor and the walls of the old race used by the gold-diggers. When not barrowing concrete for 30 metres I get to make the mix - that means shovelling, lots of shovelling. I'm enjoying helping with this community project and working 10 hour days with the 20 others high up above Mohua (Golden Bay), I'm enjoying the 30 minute walk up the track as the sun is coming up and the birds begin and i'm enjoying the pure physical exertion of the hard mahi.
