No Pockets

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.
