In the chrysalis.

Subsequently published by Floodlight Editions.

In the chrysalis, of this,

marplot moment,

Let our love be buried,

On the backs

of turtledoves.

And be the blanket for my bones.


For when our parabola


And the sinews give way,

Our time will

push the tide in.

I am a PhD Researcher of Contemporary Anglophone Literature at the University of Warwick. I mainly research 'the secret', neoliberalism, and the novel since the turn of the twenty-first century in Britain, drawing on literary studies, politics, philosophy, history, poststructuralism, postcritique, affect theory, and aesthetics.
