About the Book

My world a glass box I am
fixed in primary colours stopped
as snow unshiftable
as blood on your hands ebony
to touch

In Killing Delilah, myth and the personal meet in a powerful and uncompromising exploration of female experience. Both passionate and distanced, tentative and hard-edged by turns, these are poems of daily life, relationships, and their larger rhythms. Killing Delilah introduces an exciting and individual voice to Australian poetry.

SKRYF, which is the brainchild of Eindhoven artist Gijs van Bon, will creep around the Fremantle Town Hall leaving a trail of Chinna‚Äôs poetry created from piles of sand. »
