Description

I’ll write about all the losses: socks, loose
coins fallen behind soft-cushioned sofas,
shoes looped around lamp posts, laces dangling
like nooses, keys, coins, wallets, names and numbers
passports and purses, pens, phones, glasses, gloves. 
Moya Pacey’s Black Tulips is filled with subtly observed poems pushed into the service of a dark, and darkly humorous, sensibility.
From the Afterword:

Black Tulips are symbols of mystery and elegance and are hard to grow—a bit like writing poems. There is always a sense of mystery around how a poem makes it on to the page. How it sits beneath the surface as a garden bulb does until the conditions are right for it to begin to sprout and push into being.
