Poets don’t retire #3

Last month I noted that CK Stead (b. 1932), Kevin Ireland (b. 1933), Peter Bland (b. 1934) and Fleur Adcock (b. 1934) all have new poetry collections out about now. Then last week came a new collection, Us, then, from Vincent O’Sullivan (b. 1937).

Now I learn that Elizabeth Smither (b. 1941) has a new poetry collection out too, The Blue Coat.

Tomorrow’s visit to Unity Books in Auckland will be expensive.
