A surreal synthesis of the environmentalist, the ecologist, ornithologist, naturalist. Of the political, the emotional, the human. Can a cloud have authority, can a tree be human, a scarecrow think, an owl be cynical, or a computer threaten? These poems travel from alienation to love to landscape and from the simple beauty of nature to the deepest darkness of abuse, to despair and back to simple humour. All the emotions in a wonderful eclectic mixture that resonates.
