Meaty Bones

In this second collection from award-winning poet, K A Nelson, extends the themes in her 2018 debut collection, to write as desert flâneur or reminisce as the moon. In her concerns about the natural world she speaks directly to a kookaburra and pays homage to the riparian zone. In writing of loss, love and its antithesis, she employs wry humour or a sometimes-brutal response to aspects of contemporary Australian society that may startle readers or pose a question: how can we be better?

"In the early hours my thoughts fly north to the desert— to a woman I call mother, who took me to Dinner Camp told me a story, taught me a song, showed me a dance."

‘This is a wonderfully diverse and wide-ranging collection of new poems from KA Nelson. Personal and political, fuelled by anger, love, irony and humour, there’s a lot to chew on in Meaty Bones.’
