Mark Pirie's new collection Poems for my Father

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 by Mark Pirie

This year I published a small book of my poems written between 1993 and 2008 through my imprint The Night Press.

Poems for my Father is a collection of my poems for, concerning, or related to my father.

The poems form a sequence and cover a range of subjects from childhood travels to family portraits and reunions.

"Leo the lion, American President George Washington, poets Allen Curnow and James K Baxter, and the Great Diviner of the Pyramid in Uxmal, Mexico, form unlikely starting points for Mark Pirie’s experiences. His father is ever in the picture."
