Melbourne poetry fans: Jackson’s in town soon! 3 Sep Passionate Tongues

Melbourne poetry fans, in case you've forgotten what I look like...Melbourne poetry fans, take note! I’m booked for a 10-minute slot at Passionate Tongues on Tuesday 3 September (7:30pm at The Brothers Public House, 42 Johnston St, Fitzroy) and hope to be included in the open mike at the Dan Poets Anthology Launch and maybe at POSTY and whatever else might be happening.

I have two new books, A coat of ashes and The emptied bridge. Both will be available from me while stocks last. Pay as you feel.

In the dream, he tells me he doesn’t need a condom

(From The emptied bridge)

In the dream, he tells me
he doesn’t need a condom
because

he has his book. In the dream, we’ve both
read it. Condoms are a manifestation
of Capitalism. A Bad Thing. Probably

made by Monsanto. We don’t
need them. We can use our minds
to divert the sperm. In the dream

I know it works, if done
correctly, wholeheartedly,
together. We have to trust.

I can’t.
I can’t.
I can’t. Yet

in the dream, we don’t
have a condom
to our name.
