Poems about growing up and living in cities and urban environments.
'Gazing at the stars from five storeys up,
smelling the bins from five storeys below.
Overheard arguments, overheard laughter.'
A disappearing father and a Mermaid-Queen mother; statues that sing for flesh and blood; bullies who kick you under the table; perfect red trainers and the things that lurk in the library.
Award-winning poet Joseph Coelho's astonishing new collection is a powerful and moving poetic narrative about growing up in the city.
