This debut collection of poems weaves through worlds familiar and unfamiliar—from the poet's vanished childhood in Zimbabwe to the shops of Paris and Antwerp. Exploring an unpredictable parallel world, describing troubling modern silences, and engaging death, violence, and love, this collection combines the real and surreal to draw meaning from time and change.
