The Day of the Flying Ants by Emily Cotterill
The Day of the Flying Ants is about home and leaving home. Much of this entertaining pamphlet focuses on finding, losing, and loving a sense of place. Ants fly when they’re compelled to leave home, when they’ve grown up, when there’s no place in the nest anymore. Whether in Derbyshire or Wales, these well-observed poems find their own place in an odd but familiar world.
