Book Description

22 Jan 2010 Salt Modern Poets S.
Throughout this collection, opposites collide - reality and delusion, political activism and apathy, friend and enemy, life and death. These poems cut away at convention and simmer with unsettling, dramatic images. Ironic and humorous, complex and engaging, you can't do without The Opposite of Cabbage.

Product Description


Intellectual resourcefulness formal assurance and a copious imagination underpin MacKenzie’s intuitive mastery of our post – almost- everything, huge, tiny, sad, happy, global Scottish moment (Donny O’Rourke Northwords Now)


Restrained, intelligent, quietly ironic poems, so precise and assured in their craft that they sometimes sail into liquid light. (Helena Nelson)
