Comments about Douglas Scotney

    Doug keeps challenging the reader to work out the meanings of his cryptic, indirect poems.
    He has humour, irony, all the qualities of an entertaining poet, one who could give readings
    of his own poems with success.

    A prolific poet who is transforming himself in ideas and forms. Not one for the long poem, he keeps to
    shorter poems that make the reader really think about the meaning. Has a deep knowledge of cricket and writes very good poems about the sport, but not too many. In fact, Doug has a wide and comprehensive number of topics to write about.

2014 Poet Wishes

2 actually.

For 2014
I would share the wish
that what happens
happens out of care

and wish
that bad and good make room
for greatness
as their heir.

After Your Visit

I wished I hadn't returned your two ice packs
When I realized my missing one
Was probably in your Esky.
'I'll be able to make do', I thought,
'I've still got one big one that lasts all night,
Two small blue ones,
And the softpack that stays hard
Beyond all expectations.'
