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.
