Arranged in four lyrical sections, this collection of poems presents colorful images with a narrative drive and the true cadences of a storyteller. Traveling from Troy and Waiheke to San Francisco and Spain, this variety of verse leads into a discussion of simple objects, making the ordinary things of the world extraordinary. Finishing with compositions based on the poet’s past, the short, intense New Zealand lyrics combine the everyday with a visionary sense of mystery and wonder.
