Description of the Book :


Written on 21 consecutive days, these poems reflect on subjects as varied as the majesty of The Ancient Forest, the simple joy of a cup of coffee, and the trauma inflicted by hetero-masculinity. The themes of tenderness, connection, and resistance that recur throughout are simply and elegantly wrought (partly as a result of being almost entirely accidental). Some capture simple moments and images, some draw on deep wells of complex feeling. They range in form, subject, and level of polish, but they all carry the unmistakably honesty of a gifted writer riding a wave of frantic creation.
