The City Itself

My most recent book, published by Hesterglock Press in April 2017, is a work of psychogeographical exploration of Dublin and Limerick, and all points between. Please buy direct from the publisher.

coverfrom Pensato

My first ever e-book was published by Kenneth Keating’s Dublin-based Smithereens Press. The title, which is the past participle of the Italian verb pensare, meaning to think or realise. It’s also a musical term indicating a note that is written down but not played. The ‘from’ is there because I hope to write more of them.

Why not take a look; did I mention that it’s free?

“In addition to metapoetic explorations . . . Mills covers some very traditional poetic ground indeed: the quiet work of nature . . ., domestic love . . ., urban alienation . . . , and even, in a roundabout and refreshingly unbardic way, Irish sectarian politics.” — Robert Archambeau
“Mills is one of the not-many poets who stick with and work at “experimental” poetry . . . , which sometimes seems like a scalpel or rifleshot beside the bread-knives and blunderbusses of today.” — Books Ireland
“Billy Mills’s inventive and wry reflections on the complex relationship between language and the world will stimulate those who have grown weary of the continued dominance of the unitary lyric ‘I’ voice in Irish poetry.” — Dónal Moriarty
