Product Description

A collection of sharp, sensory poems that build a narrative of love and marriage, migration and isolation. ‘. . . Tonight marks a thousand dry nights and I want to show you something. It’s a little cave hollowed out by my thirst, a place for you to live.’ In this powerful collection, Amy Leigh Wicks takes the reader on a literal journey from New York City to Wellington and Kaikoura, and on an emotional journey from youth into ‘the dangerous country of love and marriage’. Wicks produces sharp, sensory poems that circle around love and commitment, migration and isolation. With a powerful narrative and emotional arc, this collection introduces us to an important new voice in New Zealand poetry. ‘The dark ocean from the window is still, the waves are sparkling as in photographs and all I can think is how I want to cut through the sun setting on the purple horizon with a pair of big scissors.’
