#NOTE ~ I suppose I have always been intrigued and fascinated by artists, writers, musicians, comedians or just friends who are able to capture the surreal side of life and comment using either the bizarre, the fantastic or surprising means. From Andy Warhol to Salvador Dali, Frank Zappa, Steve Martin, Hieronymus Bosch, Bonzo Dog, Tony Hancock, Chevy Chase, Monty Python, Woody Allen, Jack Black, Escher, Picasso, Radiohead, Gerald Scarfe. Any of those and many, many more who are able to describe the ironies of life with humour or intelligence are worth their weight in elephant dung … … … or gold!?
In the 60’s I dabbled with hallucinogenic drugs taking LSD on several occasions which I used to regret but the older I get the more I endorse the effects those experiments had in opening my mind and erasing so much stereotypical conditioning from my young brain and gathered while growing up in post-War Britain – so much clutter! I see those moments now as ‘positive’, like a rebooting of my conscious intelligence and the reason that now I am able to observe and understand things that I’m sure would distress me even more had I never experienced what you might call my Timothy Leary moments of exploration, experience and discovery – so, there it is – a very long introduction to a very short poetic idea –
PROG-PROSE is kind of my idea (can’t believe no one has used it before but hey I’ll be a gold-digger – I’ll be a 49er – I’ll register my claim here and now – PROG-PROSE is mine – do you hear me – m.i.n.e ! All mine and you heard it here folks)
This poem and photo sees the birth of KUDU and subsequently KUDU-MAgAZiNE – K=D= More to follow on that one – a baby kudu, a daddy kudu and the most fantastic of all earthly creatures .- the OKAPI – I believe this creature to be up there with the Unicorn, Pegasus and the Centaur – a truly mythological, fantastic creature that certainly commands my sense of the absurd and confirms my belief there is a creator!
– Indeed an Unlikely Threesome – deal with it! – Edenbray – 11.11.19 – 111119 – Magical!

A hallucinogen is a psychoactive agent which most likely causes hallucinations, perceptual anomalies, and other substantial subjective changes in thoughts, emotion, and consciousness. The common types of hallucinogens are psychedelics, dissociatives and deliriants. Wikipedia
