When you enter
Gonad’s flat
thru the garage
on Sandon Point
you will be confronted
by a life-sized colour
cardboard cut-out of the dude
in the nude-

long shaggy surfy hair
massive freckled torso
front row forward thighs
thick wad.

When you slide open
the garage door
there he is- in cardboard
to greet you.

‘No one ever needs to undress me
with their eyes,’ he smirks,
emerging from his bedroom
in his jocks.

A fortnight ago
some uppity French photographer
somehow convinced over 5000 Sydneysiders
to pose in the raw
on the steps
of the Opera House at 6 AM.

It was a particularly cold morning
the papers showed
uncomfortable
twitching
closely hugging souls.

‘You go?’ I ask.

‘No way, too many perverts.’

Gonad adds interestingly:

‘Mate, I went there the next day alone-
I stripped off my gear
& folded it neatly in a pile.
A security guard comes over
cautions me. I explain to the
neckless bloke: ‘This is for Art, man.
The photographer will be here any minute.’

He strolls around the Opera House
a few times
but no one seems to notice
or care.

‘After lunch’, he says,
‘I put my shit back on
& caught the South Coast train
home.’
