MARCH 2021 / JULY 2019
We never switch off
And is it any wonder we’ve got so many balls in the air
No pockets, see?
I received the inaugural Jack Anderson Award for Film Making, a grant from Ballarat Arts Foundation to work with filmmaker Michelle Dunn to create a professional video for the poem. The video premiered online on International Women’s Day, 8 March, 2021.
This poem won second place at the 2019 Australian Poetry Slam Heat in Geelong.
It was first published in BabyTeeth Journal in it’s text and audio forms.
