Alexander Fallos’ debut poetry collection now You’re Fucking with my Heart revolves around a failed relationship, the loss of a father and the emptiness of finding yourself totally alone for the first time in your life. The poems’ narrator is slowly sketched out through unanswered phrases and sometimes-pathetic silent cries. See me now. See me now. Look at me now. The poems in the collection are often short and concise, and some can be described as a stream of sentences that may have been spoken, could have been spoken, ought to have been spoken or should never have been spoken. The white emptiness of grief-stricken phrases is interspersed with small drops of humour, as well as a possible description of our modern times.
