“Personal, exploratory, and deeply-felt, this is a promising debut of a new voice”

Borderlands is a collection of poems that explore the liminal, the space between places, people and words. Spun from a love of language and personal experience the poems range from experimental through to lyric and confessional, what happens when people migrate and change, what happens with words when they are stranded and relocated from their familiar context, does meaning evolve through a combination of the physical space and placement.


Offshore, see how jagged islands frame
your view of the setting sun as it breaks
foaming into sea.

Watch the waves etch a path beyond borderlands.
Then, when the night stipples with wild stars,
map the wandering that waits.
