"When I first read Brenda's chapbook, I felt lucky to find poetry that made me feel weirdly and acutely human again. These poems gaze at you with their square pupils, and lick your face with their prehensile tongues. Brenda’s poems see you, and if you look back at them, you’ll see yourself, only a smaller more fragile version projected onto the abyssal surface of their eyes. This books gives us the rare chance to experience our humanity in the most inhuman terms." — Ben Mirov, Author of Hider Roser (Octopus Books, 2012)
