The poems in this collection are dramatic explorations of phenomena such as sexuality, love, grief and aggression, expressed through observations, metaphors and aphorisms.
Outwardly, people clothe themselves in various states of mind, as if each of them was a different felt shape.
The observer talks to herself and to a ‘you’ whom she alternatively trusts and mistrusts.
'This charm-bomb of a debut collection explodes on the reader with lasting effect.'
'The combination of plain language and dark elements works perfectly and convincingly.'
DAG OG TID
