Poetry about Change from Byron Bay and Beyond.
An anthology of poetry by 19 Northern Rivers poets.
“We follow this river to the most surprising and rewarding places: the frustrations of an alien trying to make Earth friends, the touch-deprived loneliness of an Easter Island statue, the wolves who evolved into whales, fallen trees and fresh saplings, failing marriages and remembered lovers, an Egyptian tomb and a rainforest retreat, a night at the ballet and a lifeless body on the beach, curved muscles and soft membranes …
This collection delivers what we hope for when we open any book of poetry – to be moved and shaken, reassured and unsettled, amused, uplifted, disrupted. To be left with something to remember. To be changed.” – Alan Close.
