“I have recently been using a lot of erasure methods within my poetry. Often this has just included using black to erase the words that I haven’t left. However, with both ‘Layers’ and ‘Haunted Honeycomb’ I wanted to try and add other visual elements to enhance the reading of the poems. Also, with ‘Clean Faces, Trashed Streets’ it was a similar idea of having the image of the discarded napkin alongside the words to illustrate my point and to provide the inspiration for the poem for the reader. I think using words is one of the best ways to raise awareness, especially with things like climate change, so I was so pleased to create these poems and have them featured in this issue of honey & lime.”
