Really happy that my poems, ‘Lavender’ and ‘Gestures’, have just been published in the brand new, Husk, from Blank Rune Press.
‘full house’ is one of my favourite pieces in my first-ever poetry collection, not poems, just words. it’s filled with truths and the tentative presence of memory.
My new chapbook, The Measure of Skin, is now available for pre-order from Vagabond Press. I’m thrilled to be part of this series in esteemed company. Check it out and place your pre-order (to arrive by the end of March 2018).
The Measure of Skin navigates the surging waves of anti-identity sweeping the world today, where one’s propensity to stand out in the crowd — because of skin colour and gender persuasion — becomes a howl for acceptance and recognition in the streets where humanity thrives, in the walls where hope breathes, in another’s touch where love resides. They are poems that are not just about love, but of how love and faith in one’s identity transcend the ideals of a normative reality.

‘Jealousies (or what mine could do)’, from Blank Rune Press’ Forgetting is So Long, an anthology of Australian love poetry (2016). Have you ever been this jealous?

When you’re talking about death or its possibility, the world seems to turn on you.
