My poem Angelo has been posted at Meanjin
Angelo explores the death of Angelo Tsakos, a 16 year old, shot by police in 1985.
Here’s an extract, the rest is up at Meanjin.
Angelo – Rico Craig
And dash lights were our campfire, and in the fretful
lustre we might’ve been mistaken for men.
We gnawed on our tongues, smoked with acetone fingers
and we knew a stolen car was intent to murder,
to run. A weapon is what cops said; enough
for bullets through a windscreen.
Cops Killed Tsakos
And a friendly reminder, as of April 2017, my first collection – BONE INK – is available here. Angelo is included in the collection.
