Our Feral Prince, a poem I put together speedily on the late great Aussie artist Adam Cullen, is about to be published in the final addition of Tasmanian-based journal Famous Reporter. My thanks to Michael Sharkey, guest editor, for selecting my work.
I'm proud of the poem, which reads like prose, and tries to be as vibrant and multi-faceted as Cullen's immortal work. Andre de Borde, co-owner of Gallery Ecosse at Exeter, NSW and good mate of mine, read the poem before I sent it off to FR. Andre was close to Adam. He thought Adam would've liked the piece very much.
I never spoke with Adam. I wish I had.
