Kingdom is a collection of poems that asks questions and argues with the answers. Although confessional, they do not repent. Both comedic and sombre, these poems search for the meaning found in everyday experiences. Whether describing an elephant's death at the zoo or a sibling road trip, these wide-ranging and visceral poems explore identity, love, family bonds, and our primal link with the natural world.
