Hello Testing

This City

I am travelling away from my life, towards my life.

This city knows all my secrets.

And that tram, lit from within, waiting at the end of the line.

This city, which is nowhere else.


When Mary McCallum got the Tuesday Poetry thing going I was a bit choked because I didn't have a blog, and didn't know how to go about getting a blog. But I think I have a blog now. So now I can join in. And I start the easy way by posting the title poem of my next book to be published by Otago University Press next year.


  1. Fantastic Jen! Welcome to blogging and to Tuesday Poem. You're our first Aussie-based Tuesday Poet. So looking forward to seeing your next Tuesday Poem. If you go to the TP blog and click on the quill you will find some html (a code) to put in your sidebar so you have a quill too. Til you get the hang of html just link to at the bottom of your Tuesday Poems. Good luck!

  2. Good to see you. Lots of Aussie-based poets, please.
