Summary This poem is an attempt to critique easy acts of identification by non-Indigenous Australians with the Indigenous victims of the pervasive and frequently violent forces of racism. It represents this as 'window shopping': attempting to inscribe the paradox of all acts of representation as potentially cynical commodification. And yet... again and again, ways have to be attempted because silence is a greater killing force. The poem commemorates the racist killing of Louis St John Johnson on the 4th January 1992.
