Poetry texts & anthologies
These are poems of wonder and precarious elation. They explore various ambivalences-around human intimacy with its bottlenecks and surprises, cities, myths, the politics of culture and the persistent trope of the existential journey (which intensifies in the new poems). They probe contradictory impulses - the desire for adventure and anchorage, withdrawal and engagement, freedom and belonging, an approach to language as an exciting resource and desperate refuge.
