About this item
‘So maybe I will love you at another time, at the other end.
Something held us back, pulling us apart.
There is no requisite to pretend
This world has failed to contain our luscious hearts...'
In Once Again Rejoiced, Lenny Shirin uses delicate, emotive poetry to present the tenderness of love.
This beauty is then contrasted in Half Assumed Stunt, in which ‘Selfishly you trick me into your arms / whilst I await cruelty in your lies."
A thought-provoking, universally relatable collection by an exciting new talent.
