This is a poetry of layers and echoes. Poems which bring together people and places - family relationships enacted through webs of intimacy or distance, the dead remembered in interleaved images of art and medicine. These are poems concerned with the living presence of place - and with what is written over it by maps and history, whether in the crash site of a military aircraft in Argyll, in the personal histories of an elegy or in the eroded landscapes of the Scottish hills. Here the living move through time and weather, making and remaking their own language in the music and silences of the poems.
