Notes

  • Epigraph:

    HOMO NEST RAIDED, QUEEN BEES ARE STINGING MAD

    — JERRY LISKER: New York Daily News, July 6, 1969.

    Report on the raid by the Tactical Patrol Force on the Stonewall Inn,

    a private gay club, at 57 Christopher Street.

    Listen. Whatever we do from here on out

    Let’s for God’s sake not look at each other

    Keep our eyes shut and the lights turned off—

    We won’t mind touching if we don’t have to see

    — PHILIP WHALEN

    'This anthology...is a negotiation of many spaces. That of poets and their work, the idea of "Australia", the idea of being "represented" in a different demographic (America), personal or textual issues with anthologiser, who else is being included (though none outside myself and the publishers have knowledge of this until publication). Vitally, whoat matters is the conversations that arise from the anthology going public, and how the poets and readers deal with this community that has been organically and artificially induced.'
