Mens underpants! black, plain
Against them my white lines
Mens underpants! solid-seamed,
in the crotch
So much space for my
Mens underpants! in the mirror
They cover the caesar scar trench
in my flesh
Mens underpants! dark, flat
Against them my fair rondure
In them I am so much more
of a woman

My year has gone well so far!
My first peer-reviewed scholarly publication, a creative paper, A dao of poetry? Non-intentional composition, emergence and intertextuality, was published in The Authorised Theft Papers, the Australasian Association of Writing Programs’ 2016 conference proceedings. This contains ten poems from my PhD project, including crowd favourite A coat of ashes.
Two previously-published poems, ‘am i not?’ and ‘suck faint amity’, were published in the Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry (available as a paperback and as a Kindle, Google or iBookstore e-book).
One poem, lamps, was published in Cordite 57 ‘Confession’.
