love-death-in-castlemaine_invitation-s

Love and Death in Castlemaine
is a collection of my poems about my life in and around Castlemaine since the early 1980s, in a tribute to the goldfields and to those I have loved, and lost.
Sue King-Smith, poet, writer, and previous chief editor at Melbourne Poets Union,
will launch my chapbook – during the inaugural Castlemaine Poetry Festival.
The event is also a celebration of Mark Time Books, the publisher of the chapbook series, and there will be readings from central Victorian Mark Time poets – Ross Donlon, Tru S Dowling, Sue Gillett, Ann de Hugard, Rob Wallis, and Sue King-Smith.

Poetry Monash 88

Poetry Monash 88_cover s

Very pleased to have my poem ‘A Hidden Apology’ published in Poetry Monash alongside fellow Central Victorian poets: Tru S Dowling, B N Oakman, Rob Wallis, Nola Firth and Ross Donlon.

A HIDDEN APOLOGY

We were always hiding
in the interim
living on fool’s edge
of love’s abyss.
Open places we could fall
in love
were hidden from full view
in the echo of precious words
that came too late
and of words
that came unasked for
in a time for listening unheard.
