Glide â€” Poems is the second part of an eco-poetic project that began with the landmark collection Yuiquimbiang.
Louise Crisp's new collection extends her walking interrogation of environmental destruction in south-eastern Australia; stolen land afflicted by the ongoing colonial practices of logging, mining and land clearing. Glide â€” Poems is a series of radical long-form poems which attend to specific East Gippsland ecosystems: endangered gliders of the foothill forests, rare grasslands of the Gippsland Plains, a copper mine on the montane headwaters of the Tambo River, and the historic Brolga country of the Gippsland Lakes' fringing freshwater wetlands in counterpoint to the Brolga swamps and lagoons of south-western Victoria. Crisp creates an intimate and haunting poetics of inhabitation and dialogue with the more-than-human world
