y separately published work icon Bull Days North Melbourne : Arcadia , 2016 9699563 2016 selected work poetry

'The poems in Bull Days grapple with desire, ethics and compassion. From the first, the speaker confronts the challenges of today's world. Language becomes the ground of the undoing of a relationship that we are not certain has begun. Perhaps it may yet emerge out of the speaker's contemplation. Multi-voiced, this sequence of fifty-eight sonnets explores the contemporary possibilities of the form.'
