Review Short: Selina Tusitala Marsh’s Tightrope

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review


I like the way a backyard door opens ‘parting sooty / veils of flies,’ in the first poem of Selina Tusitala Marsh’s Tightrope. Outside are Max V, Lima and Ono (‘knotted fur, nettling bones / fat eyes, fat hunger’), and they have found a dead dog on the road:
sniffed out its decayed meat

dragged it home

and in pecking order

began to eat
