The Night Press publishes Mark Pirie’s Poems for my Father

The Night Press has published a collection of broadsheet editor Mark Pirie’s poem for his father.

Poems for my Father is a collection of Mark Pirie’s poems for, concerning, or relating to his father.

The poems form a sequence written between 1993 and 2008 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.
