'This is a collection of poems prompted by a mix of real-life episodes in Melbourne and Sydney, dreams and constructions from curious fragments of language. They range in tone from the comic to the elegiac, and in form from the 231-syllable 'expanded sonnets' of parts I and II to the 'short-story' poems of part II.' (Publication summary)
