Goddess Muscle

Author(s): Karlo Mila

NZ Poetry | Staff Picks

This long-awaited poetry collection from award-winning Pasifika poet Karlo Mila spans work written over a decade.

The poems are both personal and political. They trace the effect of defining issues such as racism, poverty, violence, climate change and power on Pasifika peoples, Aotearoa and beyond. They also focus on the internal and micro issues – the ending of a marriage, the hope of new relationships, and the daily politics of being a partner, woman and mother. The collection meditates on love and relationships and explores identity, culture, community and belonging with a voice that does not shy away from the difficult.
