Koala Bear, years rivulets
haunt Bunyip Bluegum of
the page, like ‘Do Androids Dream of
Electric Sheep?’ shove
into paged minds, extinct
critters of yesterday years, for
wind-ups as indistinct.
Melinda Jane, known as The Poet Mj, is living in Mel’s Wonderland under the southern cross and gum trees of an Island that floats down under some call Australia. A place which gives space within and upon this wide brown land of floods, droughts, fires and beasts that hop. Hopping is a must here as many stand on one leg. Mj performs the spoken word at festivals, fringe, art galleries and small gatherings. A writer of published children’s books, prose, play, short stories, poetry and song lyrics.
