Transcript of Continuum

Presented by Julia and Susi Continuum by Allen Curnow "the moon rolls over the roof and falls behind my house, and the moon does neither of these things, I am talking about myself."

on the wind, or something." "A long moment stretches, the next one is not
on time. Not unaccountably the chill of

his litter and his tools and paces me back
to bed, stealthily in step" the obsession to finish the poem escape from restlessness, finding inspiration alitiration the privets act as a fence that keeps him away from inspiration Minutes are longer than they actually are waiting for greater idea finally finds the inspiration leaves to go and create Demiurge - a powerful, almost a God who takes things from the planet and creates it into something else Stealthily - slowly walking 3rd person point of view
