The Ski Flier
This is the miracle, to walk as if alive As it traverses various landscapes, The Ski Flier also moves through a world where power exists in the same breath as vulnerability. Maria McMillan's incredibly vivid second full poetry collection takes in mountains and cities, dragons and daughters, hope and wish fulfilment, demolition and renewal. With shining intelligence these poems demand that we pay attention to where we have been and where we are now.
