They also focus on the internal and micro issues – the ending of a marriage, the hope of new relationships, and the daily politics of being a partner, woman and mother. The collection meditates on love and relationships and explores identity, culture, community and belonging with a voice that does not shy away from the difficult.

"Such sweet flowing lyrical currents. Always audible, always mesmerising. This is poetic craft at its most agile."

Paula Green, NZ Poetry Shelf

"In this ground-breaking poetic text, Mila’s writing carries us safely through the cyclone of personal and political turmoil, and like the manu tai (our ancestral oceanic guide) reveals ancient indigenous pathways for those of us who have lost our way."

Leilani Tamu, The Spinoff
