Product Details

‘Gabriel’s poems in this enthralling book read like written records of spiritual revelations’ Theresa Lola

‘We are held in Àkámọ́’s sermon of poems. We walk out remembering the holiness of being alive and the goodness we are seeking in ourselves and others.’ Bayan Goudarzpour

In At the Speed of Dark, Gabriel Àkámọ́ pits the mind’s chiaroscuro against the many shades of grey that make up our reality. These questioning poems hold empiricism and faith, gravity and progress in the balance. Formally expansive, they play on the equivocation of white space, its ‘faux-quirky false irony’. Like an epiphany lost on waking, they entreat us to slow down, ‘reclaiming time, clawing back at the clearness of sky.’
