While living in the US, David Adès wrote his poem, "Yesterday's Feast." The poem celebrates his getting to know the poets and poems of Pittsburgh. He writes, "…and how by being/ an Australian and a poet in Pittsburgh elevates me to the/ Australian poet, elevates me from my usual happy enough/ position as one of thousands of Australian poets…" In 2014, Adès won the University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor's International Poetry Prize for his poem "Dazzled." Perhaps for a while Adès was the Australian poet in Australia, too.
