David Pring-Mill takes a metaphysical microscope to the human condition and asks what it is to be human in the age of the appliance. Has our technology subjugated us? Have we become so addicted to doing that we’ve forgotten to be? These poems gently coax us to reconnect with nature, and our human nature. The elegant verse will echo in your thoughts long after you have finished reading.
—Charlie Fish, writer, editor at Fiction on the Web
Pring-Mill’s poem ‘Newborn Green’ is an overwhelmingly beautiful poetic prose piece, too lyrical to be anything but epic. The repetition and alliteration bring a masterful register, with the occasional rhyme adding a surreptitious sophistication. Extremely pensive and brilliantly executed.
