My Father's Tools

By Tom Petsinis

It’s a decade since you died,

But they remain, a legacy of sorts, 

Set by your galvanising touch.

I see you in the shape of my hand 

Rummaging for the nail

That crucifies father to son.


extract from NAILS


'Tom Petsinis is a unique voice in Australian poetry – a powerful vision that can accommodate both the music of making and the even stranger shapes of the human heart.'
Jaya Savige, Poetry Editor, Australian Literary Review
