Northbourne Contemporary: a love/hate poem

Modernity has begotten a new form of madness – or is it simply the season? Yes, dear readers, Iconophilia offers this dialogical poem on the subject on this Christmas day, 2009. It is dialogical in the sense that it is to be performed by all of you, in random order, in the traffic, to be spoken out loud, windows down, whenever your eye lights on a piece of this consumermodernist contempormodernist wordage brandage. In the spirit of the Cabaret Voltaire Australis, go on, be a sport

1. ASPIRE RONDO STYLE, SPORT

Swift discovery polo club generation!

Eclipse charade-savvy grandeur (grande, grandis),

swing odyssey, rio titanium!

Sonata astra acclaim, avalon applause echo,

patriot commodore liberty conquest.

Lambada [or: lambadada] avantgarde avenger.

2. PREGIO [translated from the Spanish, roughly, “Dear baby Jesus, pray grant me succour in this hour of need”]

Soarer bora, vienta epica magentis avensis, dualis verso premacy.

Aurion navara solara, aristo yaris, lantra murano pulsar…

Prius terios lanos, rubicon tiguan triton –

solara metiz impreza actyon, pajero altise levin, tiida getz nubira.

3. BOXSTER [translated from the Californian, roughly, “there’s a whole new generation who think like this”]

Roomster, forester, sirion pulsar.

Tiburon elantra futura musso, festiva seca paseo…

Dualis.

Fuso.

Applause.
