Donald Bruce Dawe Poems


All day, day after day, they’re bringing them home,
they’re picking them up, those they can find, and bringing them home,
they’re bringing them in, piled on the hulls of Grants, in

Homo Suburbiensis

One constant in a world of variables
- A man alone in the evening in his patch of vegetables,
and all the things he takes down with him there

Enter Without So Much As Knocking

Blink, blink. HOSPITAL. SILENCE.
Ten days old, carried in the front door in his
mother's arms, first thing he heard was
Bobby Dazzler on Channel 7:

Weapons Training

And when I say eyes right I want to hear
those eyeballs click and the gentle pitter-patter
of falling dandruff you there what's the matter
why are you looking at me are you a queer?

What a wonderful man Dawes is to devote such heartfelt words to the things that he feels passion for and that have touched his heart. As for the other illiterates leaving comments; You people disgust me & are everything that is wrong with the world. Learn how to spell you brats! It's clear that you people will amount to nothing & I feel sorry for you. I wish someone cared enough about you to actually feel disappointed in you! .
