Black Aussie Poet
« on: December 12, 2010, 08:09 AM »
I've been wanting to  post some Aussie poetry in the Alley for some time.
This poem is by an indigenous writer, Samuel Wagan Watson. He's young, aboriginal
and I think his works have the ability to cross between cultures and speak to people of
any nation.

I'm interested to know what you think about bridging cultures through poetry, and also
the division of cultures through poetry...if ya understood that yer good  :tongue

This link ----> http://www.uqp.uq.edu.au/author_details.php?id=88 gives a brief biography of the poet.

btw, Aussie spelling used here ;)
