The poems presented in this collection cover a variety of themes. The role of gender and gender identity and our images of sex and gender flowing into the theme of self awareness and the reaction to our own perceptions of ourselves through other people’s eyes. These poems explore themes of family and relations that are sometimes difficult to understand. The conclusion to this collection is a set of poems written on pastoral themes of interaction with and through nature.
