Follow Lenni Sanders into the queasy and nocturnal world of Poacher, and be transformed. Here horror imagery and romantic lyricism combine to construct a new gothic world. These poems are eerie, thoughtful, bodily. They explore sexuality, and dreams and nightmares. They are full of devouring creatures.

By turns tender and disgusting, Poacher creates and examines different, dynamic ways of wanting and longing. Influenced by magical realism and contemporary art, often wryly funny, the poems place strange characters in mundane places – and are alive to the changes such friction and intimacy can cause.
