The first collection from a young British-born, Zimbabwean-raised writer, this pamphlet explores what it feels like to come to a country both familiar and alien, and the dislocation of crossing the Equator. Personal, exploratory, and deeply-felt, this is a promising debut of a new voice.

Offshore, see how jagged islands frame
your view of the setting sun as it breaks
foaming into sea.

Watch the waves etch a path beyond borderlands.
Then, when the night stipples with wild stars,
map the wandering that waits.
