✨One of almost two dozen collaborative poems appearing in our largest chapbook to date, A TRIP TO THE ZZOO (2020, Collusion Books) — available now
• full-colour variant cover (wolf or deer designs)
• limited edition of 100 numbered copies
A collection of collaborative poems that in some manner mention, reference or explore animal life; the title’s variant spelling is a deliberate gesture, signalling to the reader that the poems only share a partial resemblance to the spectacle of animal exhibition at a traditional zoo. These poems often venture into the territory of ecopoetics, with environmentally-conscious through-lines being a frequent presence in the work, either implicitly or explicitly.
