Damian Balassone’s poems have appeared in a variety of Australian and international publications.  His second collection of poetry has recently been published by Ginninderra Press.  Of the 45 poems featured, all have previously been published, with the exception of the title piece Daniel Yammacoona, a sweeping narrative poem with a desert setting, fused with themes of family, country, Australian football and other contemporary issues that touch the human spirit.


The book can be purchased from Readings Bookstores or by contacting the author direct.  In the meantime, feel free to read some of the poems via the Poems page.
