Streetscapes, by Martin Jon Porter
Cul-de-sacs. Parks. Footpaths. Busy roads. Creeks. Car parks. Streetscapes…
Where No Home Like a Raft explored wanderlust and faraway places, Streetscapes examines Martin Jon Porter’s re-assimilation into suburban Melbourne. And the streetscape GPS isn’t what it used to be.
Sketched with purposeful minimalism, these poems invite us to consider the bare lines of landscape and social activity that define our world. Streetscapes allows us an access to the lives of others in what proves to be an illuminating view of the city and the people within.
