1 Fixings of Musedom (or How to Use a Muse) i "I mean it to be a thing that is lank but fond like a dead feather boa no-one can remember who it belonged to originally god", Melinda Bufton , 2018 single work poetry

1 y separately published work icon Superette Melinda Bufton , Glebe : Puncher and Wattmann , 2018 15278942 2018 selected work poetry

'Superette’s speaker assumes the guise of an audacious flâneuse with a practiced eye for detail. A combination of Dorothy Parker wit, burlesque, and punk, this citizen stylist observes urban life anew. The collection pulsates with sneaky beats and sharp observations of latent and not-so-latent fantasies. Her poems swell with lunch-hour humidity, re-envisioning our everyday routines and small intimacies.  Be prepared to surrender to Superette’s artful turns and city pockets, as Bufton leads us through a contemporary expanse with effortless flair.'   (Publication summary)

— Appears in: Long Paddock , vol. 76 no. 2 2016;
'A recent article in The Guardian profiled contemporary British artist Tracey Emin reassembling her most famous and award-winning work “My Bed” (1998) for an upcoming exhibition at the Tate Liverpool. The journalist observes her installation of the twenty-year old component parts and comments that Emin appears to be slightly squeamish about some of the ziplock-bagged items; the condoms, used tissues, the ’90s cigarette butts.'
