Read a review by Richard Price from Painted, spoken magazine.
When Borso d’Este (below) died of malaria
inexact words were mined, and the block lightened
in tumbling. Down. A reversal of tuna
on stun, sighs. O mother of nacre
chipping the baby away to disclose seeds of rock
is it not thus and through this the fearful alter
id should establish kinship in across?
Mine is the one that mirrors the one that alters
the screw-pine, pandanus or breast/fruit symbol
tamed in the body of which I arrange transfer
Cupping, I rearrange water.
I saw you expecting me.
