    'What could Australian poetry look like at the moment? It could look like any kind of poetry, like any language formed in (mostly) turning lines. It could look like a thousand things. Here, it looks like this: one big picture with countless moving parts. We think it's a good picture. We know it's not the only one, but it's a contribution to a conversation that's always carrying on beyond the moment.' (Bella Li and Jill Jones Foreword introduction)

Works about this Work

No More Band-aid Solutions : The Close Reading of a Poem William Fox , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Overland [Online] , May 2018;

'Footage of Bob Dylan during the 1985 recording of ‘We are the world’ turned into a meme recently. The footage is great, and it’s the first thing I thought of when I read the title of Aidan Coleman’s poem ‘Band | Aid’ (published in Overland’s summer edition and republished below). The connection made sense because ‘We are the world’ was the US response to Band Aid, a 1984 UK invention famous for ‘Do they know it’s Christmas’.'  (Introduction)
