My Life as a Goldfish and other poems
Shortlisted for CLiPPA 2015
These succinct poems, sometimes darkly humorous and incorporating delicious wordplay, are lessons in how economy of words can lead the imagination to soar. The collection explores a thought-provoking range of different perspectives, with both humorous and more poignant poems each examining a range of emotions and feelings.
