From the publisher:
Exploring interactions of the natural world in the light of human relationships, Isabel Galleymore’s first collection of poems move between the loving, the symbiotic and the parasitic. Metaphor commands these connections, bringing the seemingly inanimate and peripheral to centre stage. Whether focusing upon a seed, sweet pea, sea anemone or barnacle, these intimate encounters address the pleasures and perils of finding likeness between the domestic and the wild. Dazzle Ship introduces a vital new voice in contemporary poetry and confirms that the everyday is indeed strange.
