The poems in Flying Fish wrestle with our fascination with the sea, our helplessness in the face of love and loss, our fear of age and all that lies beyond. In them we glimpse 'the otherlife' of things caught out of their own element. From the flying fish of the title poem to a prehistoric monster discovered on a market stall, this book is filled with characters and creatures who, for one strange moment, become more gloriously, or horribly, themselves than ever before.
