Interpersonal relations -- Poetry, Identity (Philosophical concept) -- Poetry
The poems contained in this collection attempt to enact the dizzying experience of being a thing of consciousness in the world, the strangeness of navigating life as a body among bodies. In doing so, they stumble over, into and through themes of relation, grief, solitude, ritual, identity, perception, failure, idolatry and survival, among other things.
