She is a poet who specialises in an acute observation of her ordinary surroundings, which seem to be sucked into the internal representation of her poem.

Box of Bees
A box arrived today,
a construction, neat with precision
delicately lined with lead.
The exactness of each flick
a deep imprint; mirrors you,
your wrist action an open

in your eyes.
Disappointment as I handed it back;
your teeth disjointed in crooks
as your pleas; repeat.
