In Derk Wynand's eleventh collection of poems, his first in nearly a decade, he continues to explore the effects of geographical displacement on the psyche and language of the emigrant or traveler. Often, the mute animal world lends a physical dimension to more abstract meditations on love and loss. A melancholy, sometimes tropical horizon note frequently sounds beneath the book's wry humour and northern ironies.
