Grouped into four sections, the poems in this collection relate to the writer's experience of diving “into the destructive element” (in Joseph Conrad's words), naked, vulnerable, stripping off clothes, masks, and preconceptions in a process of connecting with the “creative spirit” in a way that is playful, loving, emotionally rich and wet, care-full, and spontaneous. These poems are conversations with the living, the dead, and the world itself.
