8 poems (2002)

My chapbook 8 poems appeared as part of a three-chapbook issue of du papa, a short lived poetry press established by Michael Farrell and Joe Hill.

8 poems, together with with Melbourne poet Claire Gaskin’s 9 poems and Slovenian poet Primoz Cucnik’s 4 poems, was staple-bound individually in A4 format and compiled loosely in a plain white folio with a black ink line on its cover. A total of 100 copies of each chapbook were printed.

Collectors may be interested to note that the inside front cover incorrectly states that I was born in 1969.
