Riot Control/Public Order

Riot Control/Public Order is inspired by the photographs of Sarah Pickering, particularly her collection Public Order – “a project exploring the Metropolitan Police Public Order Training Centre, a simulated urban environment where officers rehearse responses to civic unrest.”

The poem investigates the idea of protest, civil disobedience and the response of the government. 

Riot Control/Public Order is one  of the new poems included in the updated edition of Bone Ink released through University of Western Australia Publishing
