Product Overview

From jaunty and self-deprecating to serious and nostalgic, the poems in this collection paint a vivid portrait of Wellington businesses and institutions. Quietly hilarious, the verse captures the essence of Toyota, Tony?s Tyre Service, Metalworx Engineering, Wellington Scrap Metal, the KFC on the corner of Pirie Street, and the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. At the heart of this collection are three stunning sequences: an ode to walking the streets of Wellington, a gathering of surreal and quirky moments, and a lyrical approach to the author?s travels from Bangladesh to the south of France. Playing with the contrasts of light and dark and dawn to dusk, this compendium also explores the balance between departures and arrivals as well as the seen and unseen.
