Leonie Rushforth's first book reveals a poetics on high alert, where the 'tireless human sonar' scans a compromised world for calamity and grace. In her vision of precarity and connectedness, attention might prove the opposite of surveillance: a tender, sober act of keeping faith with the ethical force of exact expression. Her poems are provisional landscapes, like river deltas, where with language both sidelong and luminous she suggests a way of seeing and measuring distances - temporal, spatial, political - that opens a route not only to individual survival but to humane dialogue and the hope of community.
