"These are direct, imagistic poems formed purely from appetite; a compendium of metabolisms. Bound within sites of both domestic and intellectual labour, the poems narrate the idiosyncratic rituals surrounding food preparation, consumption, and observation.

The vocabulary of the vanitas is here reconfigured via a poetics of devouring, which focuses on the liminal, the leftover, and the wasted. The subject speaks in and through the objects of digestion of the still life, mapping interrelations of celebration and shame, desire and rage, inscribing the most complex and fleeting of hungers."
