'In the bright mirror morning, I scratch
at flaked skin & peel lengths
of stringy flesh to expose
crackle quartz jutting from my neck
.

'In this highly original debut collection, Rae White’s edgy and playful poems challenge notions of category, identity, form and gender. Bodies transform, nature morphs and words dart and shift. White’s wise and provocative poems define new ways, new languages.' (Publication summary)
