NEW DEPARTURES NO.15 FOR 1983 - This was a
publication featuring the poets who took part in
the Third International Poetry Ollympics.
Kevin performed/read many pieces which can be found
on bootlegs but this only included
The Holy Mechanic
The mechanic had a dream
that his pockets were filled
with holy oil
and that
the holy grail
was stuck to his garage floor

He sat about
wiping his hands
with religious fervour
on oily rags,
rubbing and rubbing
till his palms were bloody

later (much later)
they hung his body
from a cross of spanners,
laughed -
left him at the crossroads
with the tractors
