‘My Friend’s Mum’ in Cordite

At the risk of blaring my own trumpet, I have recently had a poem published in Cordite No Theme IV; edited by John Tranter.

The poem is called My Friend’s Mum and it was written while I was on holiday in Auckland late last year.

The mum and I are still on friendly terms (thank god!) but the hobo and I are not. C’est la vie.

This is the second time I’ve appeared in Cordite, which is leading me to suspect that I may be halfway decent at this poetry thing. It’s also the second time that Mr Tranter has selected one of my poems for publication (the first was for The Best Australian Poems 2012).

Even better, Cordite No Theme IV also features a wonderful poem called Imaginary Cinema by my friend Miro Bilbrough. She’s amazing.

I’ve got a lot of stuff happening right now, but some new poetry should be appearing soon. Stay tuned. 🙂
