The author's spatial and temporal distance from his homeland, New Zealand, informs these poems that sprawl from Beirut to Africa and "reckon" with the poet's 60 years of life experiences. Lucid, thoughtful lyrics subtly blend the personal and political as they display a strong sense of New Zealand over a range of worldwide locations.
