Swallow 2010 selected work poetry 'Composed of four sections beginning with the persona of a fabled sea-diver clutching seaweed in her hands and culminating in the wing-beat of a giant kinetic bird, Swallow expands the mythological flight of a migratory bird into a credence of vagrancy, refracted through images drawn from tides, letters, beehives and oranges. These poems are bites of empty sky brimming with the tension of a lightning storm. Swallow has all the sensuousness of Potter's earlier work; her poems are beautifully wrought, resounding.' -- (From the publisher's website.)
