'Four numbers. Four poets. Count it in: 5 is the sweetest gear; 6 is a hex; 7 are the virtues; 8 is subatomic.
'This collection of 40 poems asked four poets to write 10 poems in response to a selected number 5 6 7 or 8. The poems that arise are playful, wistful, hard-edged and imaginatively engaged with the poetry built from this seemingly simple foundation.' (Publication summary)
