Good Listeners by Pascal Vine
“Pascal vine is a raw, honest writer who plummets you into the world as he sees it. A world full of sensual, spiritual and visceral reflections on nature and humanity. He knows how to walk you into the core of the heart and leave you there.”- Rebecca Tantony
The world has a way of getting into you; these poems document the process of prying it out. Whether that be from an ash tree’s trunk or a rabbit’s warren, or behind an abandoned shipping container on the way to work, or in a dusty noise show basement, Good Listeners leads you through the afterlife of trauma and disability. You will meet many strangers to guide you into a world where you may suddenly find yourself coping.
