Author Bio


Michael Potter


Mick was born in Richmond, raised in Mentone, and cellared for a good number of years in Rosebud. Mick always speaks the truth in his poems, except for when he lies. Common themes in Mick’s poems are love, hate, satire, truth, lies, liquorice blocks and quantum physics. Somewhat irritatingly, Mick has a penchant for referring to himself in the third person. Mick hopes to eventually earn enough from his writing to free him from the need to rob banks and wash windscreens at intersections. Mick’s favourite colour is indigo and his favourite number is nine. Ooh, and he’s an Aries!
