From the author
The eye as it inhales onions is a collection of poems that question and explore themes including identity, self-realisation, the somatic body and intercultural experience. The poems experiment and play with form and structure as they move freely between the real and the surreal.
Poetry came to the author in 2015 after she returned from a period of study in India and this collection includes works from that time through to 2018. The eye as it inhales onions moves along in a wave-like motion as it touches on various states of consciousness and mind, body, spirit connections. The collection is ultimately centered on a woman’s ways of being in and negotiating the world.
