I'll be reading some of my poems with super-talented poet Louise McKenna at 5.30 pm next Wednesday 20th November at the State Library of South Australia, North Terrace, Adelaide.

'Words @ the Wall' is a joint Friendly Street Poets and State Library event and is a lovely, unique kind of poetry reading. The library is a beautiful setting and the event itself - two poets reading for no longer than 45 minutes - gives the audience no time to get bored.

And it's free.

I posted an excerpt from a poem here. It's a love poem of sorts.

Here's the full text of the poem, which is included in my book Lead Skeletons.

Let me know what you think.

Note to him/self

You've seeped through every living cell.
You've made my bones your home.
Your presence shades my past uncertainties,
colours my tomorrows.
Your stillness punctures the racket of sleepless thoughts.
Your gentleness swabs wounded memories,
your faith congeals in the bullet-holes in my self-belief.
Your anger reminds me that you need healing too.
