My brother Emi took his own life without a word on July 7th, 2020.
I will not hold my grief and trauma in my body and soul without language.
From the very beginning I’ve said that I will share this loss with the world because the world played its part in it.
The poems in this collection reflect how I had (have) to face the loss of a life that I had never seen coming.
Two poems from this collection have been shortlisted for the John Byrne Award.
