Canberra Poetry

Click this link for three poems - the winner and two shortlisted - from this year's ACT Poetry Awards ... in preparation for our poetry meeting later this year.

(This must be the shortest post ever!)


  1. Realisation 9/11

    Can’t imagine
    the flames, the smoke, the noise
    Roaring, rending, tearing
    A beast in the throes of death, agony
    The screaming,
    Surreal; a daze, malaise
    Escape, escape, snap out of it
    Where, where, where
    Burning there, no escape
    There is no escape, THERE IS NO ESCAPE
    Only the window
