Flowers in amongst the rough …

A robot reads my blurb. Jolly good.

Meanwhile, the Poetry Book Society review is out … ‘Julia Bird’s second collection from Salt is full of unexpected ideas, fascinating facts and images that bloom into life. At their best, Bird’s poems demand we stop and contemplate the moment, the sight of a hovering kingfisher, love songs to reanimating sea monkeys and examinations of rabbits all turning a mirror on ourselves. Twenty-four Seven Blossom is a collection that truly involves the reader, encourages us to hold our breath, to read aloud and to notice the flowers in amongst the rough.’

Publication date 15 September, whoop.
