In this, his fourth collection of poetry, Norman has mastered the poetic form known as the terminal, where a poem takes the last word of each line from the corresponding lines of another poem. These are poems with past lives – animated by rhythm while haunted by memory; poems that conjure moments of the supernatural while they wrestle with the boundary between our world and the half-remembered one lurking just beneath its surface.
