2017 is not the time to blink

The Other Shore

The Other Shore is a collection that explores the many different voices the dead use to speak with the living. We travel through modern China and beyond, to the underworlds, in poems that present a fresh take on grief, our concept of the afterlife, and acceptance of loss.
