Aidan Coleman



Fixed Terms


Notions of the real
estate pages’
blank canvas or doer upper.

Above the TV’s warring
caution,

another doomed family
settee.





Style Guide



Stand by don’t lean on weak government prose should be a window to see rhyme through the baby legs and arms beneath a Disney gallows doesn’t know the words we no longer kick with that roughening of gentle sense that leaves a toddler clutching spoon as dagger





Draw


The Symbolist circled
by headless zebras

A gun goes off

They drop their pens




Besides poetry, Aidan Coleman writes reviews, speeches and Shakespeare textbooks. His most recent book, Asymmetry (Brandl & Schlesinger), was shortlisted for the Adelaide Festival Awards for Literature and the Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards.
