1 Nature Is Healing i "elephants guzzle a stash of corn wine and snore on a field", Eunice Andrada , 2021 single work poetry
— Appears in: Best of Australian Poems 2021 2021; (p. 149)
1 8 y separately published work icon Take Care Eunice Andrada , Artarmon : Giramondo Publishing , 2021 22958120 2021 selected work poetry

'TAKE CARE explores what it means to survive within systems not designed for tenderness. Bound in personal testimony, the poems situate the act of rape within the machinery of imperialism, where human and non-human bodies, lands, and waters are violated to uphold colonial powers. Andrada explores the magnitude of rape culture in the everyday: from justice systems that dehumanise survivors, to exploitative care industries that deny Filipina workers their agency, to nationalist monuments that erase the sexual violence of war.

'Unsparing in their interrogation of the gendered, racialised labour of care, the poems flow to a radical, liberatory syntax. Physical and online terrain meld into a surreal ecosystem of speakers, creatures, and excavated histories. Brimming with incantatory power, Andrada’s verses move between breathless candour and seething restraint as they navigate memory and possibility. Piercing the heart of our cultural crisis, these poems are salves, offerings, and warnings.'

1 y separately published work icon Australian Poetry Journal Modern Elegy vol. 10 no. 1 Ellen van Neerven (editor), David McCooey (editor), Felicity Plunkett (editor), Eunice Andrada (editor), 2020 20794583 2020 periodical issue poetry 'In September 2019, Jacinta Le Plastrier invited me, Eunice, David and Felicity to be co-editors of this Australian Poetry Journal ‘modern elegy’ issue. At that time, I was not to know what 2020 would bring, or what it would be like to ask poets to write an elegy in 2020. The bushfires last summer should have been prevented, and Country should have been spared. But instead of giving First Nations people autonomy of their land and ability to perform their culture, science and caring for Country, the government is obsessed with continuing an extractive colonisation that will continue to kill us and other living beings we are in kinship with.'
