Caitlin Maling's first collection is at heart a poetry of place. Cervantes, Donnelly River, Yallingup, Fremantle, Leonora, and beyond are richly evoked in poems ranging stylistically from accomplished mature lyrics and the confessional to narratives of raw power and feeling. Restlessly questioning and frequently allusive, slipping between promise and possibility, Maling's poems are invested in the actuality of the world, exploring the landscapes of memory and the brief moment of now.I miss you sea-shallow with blue-sky flotilla of surf-spray above the armada of adolescents at the pilon dive-bombing the ... a comfort more than your sea-salt pine-sweet sea-air where the coconut oiled sea-swept hair of everyone you have ever known makes the ... past the pelican on the shark-watch tower to where the sea parts for the break with tenderness Family rule You cana#39;t be on the sand unless you.
