Whiteout's double voice searches out those troubling dualities, paradoxes and dislocations that mark our lives. Relishing the pull of bodies, these poems explore the borders between human and cosmic spheres, life and art, the organic and the technological, the secular and the spiritual. Common ground is turned up in unexpected places. The edge-work of these poems marks a willingness to quibble. By turns passionate, elegiac and tongue-in-cheek, Whiteout confronts the reader with the world s uncertainties and disorder. At the same time, it imagines ways of mending hurt, tracking the struggle to love expansively in diminishing space. This is a co-authored volume, a feature that chimes with the wider project of playing with voice and perspective, of achieving a form of whiteout.
