"We live in ruins."



A take on the London riots. The lingering confusions of a no-longer twenty-something. Climate change frustrations, social justice rage. Holding on. The streets of Hackney; the parks of central London. The sweat of drunken nights, and never wanting to go home. The hope in looking up. 

This booklet collects the 31 poems that made up the online poetry project Timid Takes - written and published between May 2012 and February 2013.
