Notes

  • Dedication: For Cath, Anna and Gabe.
  • Author's note: Many of these poems were begun, or worked on in the mornings before work, or in workday lunch breaks at the establishment which lends the collection its name, The Flash, and The Baci and Tu Dish, all of them coffee shops in Adelaide's Hindley Street. My presence certainly didn't make these places more glamorous ... though they had some glamour of their own. My gratitude to the people behind their counters over the years.

'What kind of appetite does poetry have for creating new discourses about the nation? This essay will ask if poetry can re-imagine and re-write what are often oppressive and exclusionary national discourses, asking how - historically and in contemporary work - poetry has been concerned with national forms of belonging and unbelonging. Further, the essay will ask whether Australian poetry is able to generate new and even hopeful language in which to think about the nation.' (Author's introduction)
