The smell of Emily – tales from the city

By johnboy - 22 April 2009 35

I came across this yesterday while walking past Allawa Court, the really sketchy flats to the north of Civic.

I’ve never walked that way before so I have no idea how long it’s been there. I just thought it was desperately sweet.

If you’re having trouble seeing it, it reads:

    “Feni loves with his black doggin heart
    The Smell of Emily”

What’s Your opinion?

You didn’t ask if it would be as legal or ugly, but if “as sweet”. I totaly agree with you that it is as illegal and ugly.

“His black, dogging heart”, or his “black dogging heart”?

Thumper +1. “The smell of” is in lower case, while everything else is in uppercase.

If it was Feni that wrote it all, it’s the equivalent of yelling “FENI LOVES WITH HIS BLACK DOGGIN HEART the smell of EMILY”

I think he’s sort of embarassed about loving the somewhat funky smell of Emily, but still wants to tell the world. He’s got it bad!

I’m thinking that ‘The smell of’ part may have been added after the original message.

I’m a tax payer and I think it’s sweet, it’s better then some of the crap you see out there.

I think we should each be able to claim a bit of public space in this manner, as ‘the bit MY taxes paid for’. Unless Fini is a tourist, s/he probably paid for it…

I’m not sure about sweet, but it is poetic. Better than Dorothea McKellar, anyway.

If it was a tag, which is equally as illegal, would it still be sweet ?

No, due to “tags” being illegible squiggles, the literary equivalent of a dog peeing on a lamppost.

Give Emily some of my famous boiled egg and sprout vindaloo, then see how much he loves the smell of her…

The smell of Emily doing what, exactly?

Well I think the smell of Emily makes my doggin’ stomach invert.

Gee, when I was younger, if you really felt that way about someone you’d send them a card or a letter to tell them how much they meant to you – now it seems you just scrawl this crap all over public and private property instead.

What’s a letter?
and i’m betting in your day, no-one had a “Black Doggin Heart” either.

The Smell of Emily, a new type of perfume?

Emily tries but misunderstands
She’s often inclined to borrow somebody’s dreams till tomorrow
