Kayo Chingonyi explores how distance and time, nations and a century's history, can collapse within a body; our past continuous in our present. From London, Leeds, and The North East to the banks of the Zambezi river, these poems consider change and permanence, grief and joy, the painful ongoing process of letting go, with remarkable music and clarity.

Nesta coletânea de 27, o micondó, árvore considerada sagrada em regiões da África, simboliza origem, casa, morada ancestral.
