for the carousel
or the whirly-gig
and confident showmen
where for small change
your shared ride
in a classic dream chase
About the poet
Geoffrey Aitken is an emerging poet in his home State of South Australia and is
gaining increasing momentum with publishers like “Underground Writers: Issue 27 & 28”;
(AUS), “Glass Journal: Poets Resist” (US), “Flashes of Brilliance” (US); “Aesthetica” (UK),
“Pomme Journa” (Fr) and “Plum Tree Tavern” (US), the most recent.
He writes differently and is older poet concerned about our youth and the problem of mental
health along the avenues. He has experienced hospitalization, is medicated and feels for
others who struggle. He does not dwell. He reads at open mic here in the suburbs when
timely. He loves people and poetry equally.
