Notes

  • Epigraph: 'Generation in and out we are put to use. People become instruments...Good men can be divided from their compassion by the institutional system that inherits us all.' Carl Oglesby.
  • Epigraph: 'raining down meaning from beyond the subdivisions, / proclaiming the everlasting evangel of vulnerability...' Bruce Dawe, 'The Rock-Thrower'.
  • Dedication: The poems written in this book were written in the time made possible by this [Ampol] Arts Award, and this book is therefore dedicated to Ampol in gratitude.
