There is also a short (and beautiful) chapbook of poems, That knocking, published by Little Windows Press in 2016.

My most recent full-length collection is Music Our Bodies Can’t Hold (2017) – portrait poems of other people with Marfan Syndrome, through Hunter Publishers.

In 2015, I released a collection of poems and ghazals on India and medical tourism, called Immune Systems, through Transit Lounge.

2014 saw the publication of the thin bridge, out through Whitmore Press.  You’ll be able to buy these books direct from me, and the publishers, and they should be available at Collected Works (perhaps the greatest bookshop in the world) and Brunswick Bound (also a fantastic store) both in Melbourne, and at independent bookstores pretty much anywhere…

Among the regulars (2010, papertiger media) is sold out, as is my recent limited edition chapbook This skin, a net.



Ambiguous Mirrors (filmed at Clifden, Ireland, by Bernhard Sanders, 2014)
