Read and hear some poems from the collection here (Iambapoet, July 2020)
Extract from: I am pedigree I am snow fox I am Siamese
In the asylum they shave off my fur
so they can electric me.
When I mew they show me a clump
of blond in a flat palm and I say
I am pedigree I am snow fox I am Siamese.

Extract from: Is this the ebb, or flow?
We are manacled in green
the grass like an anchor, holding us to the earth
new buds on the magnolias break through
as the blossom sheds itself like skin cells.
