Poems are born to blow a kiss at everlasting life as they rise to the rim of language then bubble and cascade over says Kevin Ireland, one of New Zealands best-loved and richly lived poets in this, his 24th collection. Here are poems that make us laugh, reflect, question, celebrate — its poetry going about its stunning business once again.
