  • Epigraph:

    As seen from the street the building was reminiscent of a

    German consulate in Melbourne.


    … take any risks you like, but never listen to a deconstructionist.


    author, and grandson of J. A. B. Koch,

    architect of the German Consulate in Melbourne

    'This 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.'
