More Indigenous poetry - and by a poet who I first read, many years ago, as a memoirist. (If you haven't read Sykes' three-volume autobiography - Snake Cradle, Snake Dancing and Snake circle - it's a definite recommend from me: in fact it would probably go on my 101 list.)

As I was reading the book, I jotted down some notes on particular poems.
