A poetry collection inspired by the poet’s time in England, Japan and Spain.
Eloquently written in an approachable style that will appeal to a wide range of readers.
A thought-provoking collection that is insightful, surprising and compelling.
Inspired by the poet’s time in England, Japan and Spain, the poems in Dynamo Memory explore how memories interact with present day realities and shape them into a new perspective.
The poems are triggered by sharply focused observation of the present and then are taken in new directions that reveal the extraordinary that underlies the ordinary. The myriad aspects of reality are thrown into sharp relief, celebrating their colourful and varied facets whilst at the same time not flinching from their darker side.
Each poem is a voyage of discovery, opening a window onto a world that is at once familiar and strange. Dynamo Memory is a compelling collection full of revelations that are often deeply moving, but also leavened by a wry sense of humour, written in an immediate style that will appeal to a broad range of readers.
“Lemons like lanterns in the trees,
tired green leaves, darkening sky.”
