Celebrating common household objects as well as fine-grained Australian landscapes, this emotionally engaged collection of poetry harvests the author’s wisdom, maturity, and interest in nearly everything. Exploring diverse topics including a bush-entangled island, a bionic elephant, and Anne Boleyn’s ghost each work uses a mixture of humor and gravity to scrutinize the meaning in our world, through the richly orchestrated language of one of Australia’s most significant poets.
