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.

'Rachel' - I've read it twice or three times now, as it's commonly anthologised. It hits hard and hurts: Palm Island, scene of Tall Man: The Death of Doom
