Johanna Emeney

New poems by a rising star of New Zealand poetry

Couples in last-chance therapy, friends unfriending, racist trolls trawling the comments section for game — this collection of poems is concerned with the things that make us feel. The felt realm is very much in nature, too. From the calm of a sleeping doe to the slow unwinding of the last bee on Earth, Johanna Emeney seems to say that there is a message in the air — for those who listen with all of the senses.

This outstanding suite of 43 loosely connected poems is by turns powerful, warm, loving and shocking.
