Where the Night Comes Closest




80 pages


This collection focuses on the link between landscape and language, place and identity. The poems extend this exploration through themes of darkness, ignorance, loneliness, the familiar made strange and of how we deal with it in languages as the images that haunt us are made more tangible in words. Where the Night Comes Closest is divided into four movements…In the Beginning, What Remains, Waking Up and Writing Down the Moon. It ends with a Coda in the form of a ghazal whose repetition of memory in all its forms sums up the four movements of the book.
