Tomi Adegbayibi’s debut pamphlet takes us to a world where colours and tastes suffuse into one another, and where relationships and prejudices mingle with bitterness and sweetness. Through the contrast of the vibrant against the dull, this poetry questions our own judgements, which are often only half-formed and malleable. Profound poetry that is as rich as it is astringent.

‘To see clearly what I am seeing you must dilute the
blue you are seeing with the sweat of yellow. You
must thin it like spit on the tongue, the tip before
transparency. You must taste the salt of the sea, the salt
of yellow. Your lungs must be navy and the walls of
your mouth green.’        – ‘Terre Verte’
