Written in the aftermath of the fatal earthquake that hit Christchurch in February of 2011, this collection of interpretive poems expresses the feelings associated with the loss of human life, buildings, landmarks, and culture of the once vibrant city. Dramatic and stirring images of the damage accompany the prose.
