Travelling freely among the shattered confines of identity and gender, travel and environment, the dreamlike narrative of this poetry collection unfolds in lyric language, telling of love lost and found, and mythologies that inform the journey with passages in the rhythm of fairytales. Seeming almost like incantations, the poems are an existential exploration of love and mortality via fairytales and nature.
