Emperor of 32 Bella Vista Drive
His daughter has outgrown the suburban vista,
outlived artless childhood devotion, now a tussle twists
in every conversation. She rails against these ancient guards,
their empty hands, their ceramic topknots.
A short extract from a poem I recently had published at Cordite Poetry Review
It’s a fantastic issue, edited by Judith Beveridge and including amazing poets such as: Jill Jones, Louis Armand, Joanne Burns, Tricia Dearborn, Omar Sakr, Chloe Wilson and heaps more. Totally worth spending some time there.
It also contains artworks from Chun Yin Rainbow Chan; the image in this post is from her Mass Culture collection.
Emperor of 32 Bella Vista Drive is included in my, just released, collection – BONE INK – available through Guillotine Press.
