The Back Room’s All Star Menu: featuring Pascalle Burton

Tomorrow night is your last chance to dine out on the fine food and live arts served up by, The Back Room at Confit Bistro. One of the highlights of the all-star menu is avant-garde performance poet musician-lady, Pascalle Burton.

Pascalle flirts shamelessly with poetry, music and visual art. She has performed at many venues and festivals both in Australia and overseas.  She recently played around with David Stavanger, Nathan Shepherdson and reversible poetry on her project, The Outlandish Watch, which is available on 7” vinyl. She performs in The Stress of Leisure, who will be October’s Resident Musicians at the Brisbane Powerhouse and soon releasing their own 7”, Sex Time. Her Lavender Room Zine-in-a-Matchbox series has been nominated in the 2011 Golden Stapler Awards and in 2008, Small Change Press published her debut collection, A Vast Laugh.

the person you felt like killing?
you did.
 
fashion costs less if you stop
buying into it
 
if I repeat this line
will it get stuck in your head?
 
multiple cars rear-end the ghosts
of victims
of machismo-wielding drivers
 
how many exhibitions have been cut short?
how many protests worked?
how much lipstick do we eat?
 
if I repeat this line
will it get stuck in your head?

there is a small cat in the carpet
leading to endless bedtime stories
with the same character
 
dreams are set in different tourist destinations
they are doing a world tour
to a sellout crowd
 
if I repeat this line
will it get stuck in your head?
 
if I repeat this line
will it get stuck in your head?
 
it doesn’t matter
there are more pressing concerns
 
like the person you felt like killing?
you did.
