Overview

Divided into four sections, this poetry collection roams through the landscapes of Australia and Italy while navigating the interior typography of loss, memory, and desire. Drawing on the poet’s early life on Bribie Island, his time as writer-in-residence in Rome, and his current life in England, this compilation offers an unsettling vision of an ever-changing world and scrutinizes topics such as technology, consumerism, and violence with the same delicate eye as it explores the natural beauty of Moreton Island and the eroding histories of Rome. Powerful and playful, these poems highlight the inherent tension between poetry’s aerial aspirations and the real world concerns that weigh it down.
