Staff Pick! Sam says...

it's hard to accept
that this is the life that we'll die in

feeding us its uncertainty
we load up on ginger shots

knowing almost anything can
be cooked on a legacy of steam
In the title poem of his new collection, Anaxagorou breaks down a dialogue between religious philosopher Krisnamurti and physicist Bohm, grounding their discussion of the 'big questions' with quotidian, domestic episodes to ask: is this it? This nationalist legacy of colonial violence, permeating everything from what we eat to how we fuck; will it continue to chase us through generations, can we outlive it? 

Deeply political, formally light-footed and full of feeling, Heritage Aesthetics is a collection to make you believe in the attempt. One to sit with and return to!
