These poems explore the remnants of a system of ancient narrative trackways that criss-cross the landscapes of south and south west England. These flows of energy underpin the hermetics of enclosure. They are explored here for the first time. This book might be a strategy - a self help manual for the ontologically dispossessed - or just an encouragement to trespass in the newly enclosed purlieu of the self. Tell it how you want, emblematic landscapes - and how we perceive them - can mirror identity and relationship, creating a cultural space within which both can become tenable.
