Default Attn Aussies: Ghyle's e-book

G'day!

For the moment, I am offering an e-book of my poems to Australians for $10.

There are 80 poems in it, and it showcases my ability with formalist and other verse. To give you a taste of it, here is the title poem, "Bitter Waters":

Bitter Waters

My heart is as a cavern
ringed with rock

within which dwells
a pool of water

never having
known the sun,

with the slow,
eternal drip:

a drop, a drop
of water falling

with every beat
into the pool,

ripples forming
center to rim,

and the slow
accumulation

of the deep
and bitter waters.

At the moment, it is only available in Australia. I do hope to see it released elsewhere, possibly through Gavin Smith Booksellers, but I have to open negotiations with Gavin; given we're friends, he might be more amenable than otherwise.

If you've an Australian friend, they may be able to pass along the payment for you.
