'Where does it take place, Stone Grown Cold?

'Let yourself think it’s a town you know well. Some bits are real and help like the sun on your back. Other bits have been gathered from gossip, screens and scumbags. There’s a good dose of sex in it and knucklehead glamour. It’s such a town. For good and for bad. With dazzle all over it. Dumb-arse to match. More gorgeous than reasonable. With everything you want. And who gives a fuck? Not prepared to play or say nice. Not much shame about the wrong things. Except on the quiet.

'Most citizens are nine-to-fivers. They’re always bumping into folks who are not:

sham company promoters; hollow share hawkers; men loitering in yards; mendacious women importuning on telephones; purveyors of poorly provenanced smallgoods; covert-camera seducers and follow-up extortionists; hotel ‘barbers’; boarding-school snow-droppers; hospital potion filchers; theatre impresarios and fanciful futures conjurers.

'Best accept it’s a town knows you well.' (Publication summary)

–Ross Gibson

Works about this Work

A Whiff of Gunpowder Greg McLaren , 2016 single work review essay
— Appears in: Australian Poetry Journal , vol. 6 no. 2 2016; (p. 70-82)

'Just one of the many really interesting trails that thread through the seeming wilds of Australian poetry over the last two or so decades (cripes, has it been that long?) is the slow, constant morphing one of Cordite. Sydney poets Adrian Wiggins and Peter Minter, founders of Cordite Poetry and Poetics Review, launched their first issue in 1997. After five issues in a broadsheet format and an oscillating editorship that included Margaret Cronin and Jennifer Kremmer, the editorship was handed over in 2005 to David Prater, whose key innovation was to appoint guest editors for mini- and, later, entire issues.'
