Exaltation in Cadmium Red splatters and brushes in poems, both as a toxic, poisonous, metallic mix, and a rich, vibrant, powerful oil colour. Shades of cadmium red have persisted throughout history as the most exuberant in the oil-paint palette; the hues meant to be mixed with other oils in subtle, specific, and precise doses for greatest effect. This body of poems revels in this fanatical, fantastic colour to express the heights and depths of passion - engaging in meditations on prayer, spirituality, feminism, and the breadth of existence in a post-colonial, trans-national and transsexual age.

"Occupy these words -- willful/ regimented type/ without remission./ Occupy this wire,/ the ink ribbon,/ tardy electric phrases,/ archaic instruments."
