    In this new collection, John Watson ranges across a multitude of subjects in his familiarly playful and engaging style. There are many poems about art, including sequences about the painters Max Beckmann and Paul Cézanne and the photographer Lee Miller; a poem in the voice of a Wattle-bird; and the inventive sequence ‘Cowpastures’, which details the discovery, in the early 1800s near Camden, NSW, of a multitude of cattle descended from a stray herd from the first fleet.
