Overview

Marketplace Product

The poems collected in apparently appear like visions, intensely experienced but barely real. Where does a poem come from? Over four sections this question is considered. The first section gathers poems spring-boarding from the clues and solutions to crossword puzzles; the second recounts unsettling dreams in the form of prose poems or microfictions; ‘dial’, the longest section, acknowledges the bewildering sense of daily time and the dizzying spectacle of social and worldly matters contained within. Finally, from a more restful or relaxed vantage, ‘the random couch’ presents a number of drifting poems, written while the poet was lounging on the sofa.



Praise for Joanne Burns’s poetry:



’It is a fascinating achievement that Burns is able to confront the surface din and wreckage of society and bring us through the other side as readers with a healthier pulse.’ – Jessica L. Wilkinson

’With subtlety and skill [Burns] reprises her spare yet concentrated appraisal of the polis, the legends and strands of the indigenous, inter-generational, confessional, and archaic presences that wash up upon its shores and into her net of words.’ – Cordite Poetry Review
