Winner of the 2017 Thomas Shapcott Prize for Poetry. In the bright mirror morning, I scratch at flaked skin & peel lengths of stringy flesh to expose crackle quartz jutting from my neck. In this highly original debut collection, Rae White's edgy and playful poems challenge notions of category, identity, form and gender. Bodies transform, nature morphs and words dart and shift. White's wise and provocative poems define new ways, new languages.
