Book Details

Climate change, the cost-of-living crisis; corporate greed, insomnia and mortality – yes, they all feature here, delicately interwoven with joyful poems celebrating love, family, food, basking lizards. And angels.

The poems offer shared recognition; words that chime; satisfying rhymes; there’s the quantum poem, Dark Matter; What of Love and Motorbike tell of 21st Century love; Puddings is nothing but puddings, while The Comfort of Chocolate twins global warming with the pleasure of chocolate; Disclosure is a lighthearted take on The Ancient Mariner; there is the essential Cat poem, Cat and Mouse; an unwelcome sexual encounter is transmuted into dark humour in Pigeon Pecked.

Poetry takes words, crumbles them and dunks them in the steaming hot tea (latte if you prefer) of the imagination.
