which welsh goddess are you?

we've got to zip
to do what needed to be done

lost our way?
toughen it up

lurching ... towards a price
on reprosecuting

there are steps we can take
everything's on the table

the doors are open
the truce is called

true to my roots
it's a good day for red heads

(forecast - possible showers)

When I was in Sydney, time before last, I did an interview with Ella O'Keefe for Radio 2SER, as part of their Final Draft program. The download has now come online.

nz review for dark bright doors

Dark Bright Doors review in Otago Daily Times, New Zealand, by Hamesh Wyatt - cool (well, 9 degrees in Dunedin).

"In 1992, Australian poet Jill Jones released a stunning debut collection of poems The Mask and the Jagged Star (Hazard). [...] Her latest collection of poems, Dark Bright Doors, continues to explore the road less travelled. [...] Her poems can be violent. They are all haunted by the same brutal truths about love and hope and the wedges that age, distance and human frailty drive between them. Dark Bright Doors exudes wide-eyed angst and a sense of discovery that's hard to put across in prose."
