Cara Bruar's first poetry collection. See the world through the eyes of a woman who isn't really weird, but has just been around for a while. Enjoy thirty-one free verse poems and four short stories. Discover the dramas of living with Australian wildlife, or explore a little speculative fantasy with a robot confessor or trolls under a city bridge. Suitable for readers of all ages.
Weird old women
They don't just appear out of nowhere, you know
They start out as weird young women
Then they learn
Only emerging, fully weird, a long time later
When they are old
When no-one can see them anyway, so they don't need to hide any more
They hide themselves
until age hides them in plain sight.
You probably know a few yourself.
