Cloud Soup, Kate Wakeling, Illustrations by Elīna Braslina, The Emma Press
I love Kate Wakeling’s poetry – her poems turn corners, they leap out from behind you, they don’t progress
in the way you would expect. They are full of invention and surprise and ideas and she has the gift of writing about ordinary things and making them extraordinarily themselves.
Here’s an example. Poets have all met poems like this.
Lovely illustrations by Elīna Braslina. It’s excellent stuff. Recommended. 5 stars.
