Biography of Jackson poet
Since 1986 I have sculpted in English, seeking poems that work whether declaimed loudly or whispered in the mind. Never a closet poet, I have always written with an audience in mind, and I like to recite to audiences wherever I find myself (mostly in Perth, Western Australia) . I try to write poems that will be appreciated by people both inside and outside literary circles. My definitive collection is at Proximity, proximitypoetry.com

I Am Your Sunlight
Like sunlight, I need
your love. Like a tree high
on sunlight, I am
your sunlight. Made of your rich rays.
In all my naked nights they are stars.
In all my empty rooms they are chairs.
In the splattered dark they are angels' voices
and in the church of my skull they are the altar
where I sacrifice and satisfy myself.
