Poetry. "Hemensley reads his poetry in a warm accent of old Hampshire and more recent Dorset overlaid with Melbourne, unconsciously abstracting his past. This book is not a harvest of words but a mapping of fields, and paths, from impressions distilled through memory and reference to lexical imagery. Hemensley dares to have a conversation with language, and language reveals the nature of what it is to be human."—Lucas Weschke
