Dear Crane, Paperback / softback Book

Dear Crane Paperback / softback

Description

A giant crane appears at the back windows of a residential street, its beam swinging freely, its red `eye' seeming to overlook the lives on the other side of the glass.

In her eighth collection of poems, Susan Wicks writes searchingly about our ordinary existence, its serendipities and unreliable sense-impressions, its delight in a new generation, its brief escapes - but this earthbound perspective is also part of an implicit dialogue.

Under the crane new buildings spring up, seasons shift, perspective varies, until, its work completed, the giant machine is ready to be driven away.

By the time it leaves, the landscape we knew will have changed and we too will have moved on.
