Envies the Birds by Angelina D’Roza


Envies the Birds is Angelina D’Roza‘s debut full-length poetry collection. A beautifully produced 80-page hardback (with cover artwork by Beverley Green).

This quiet is more shul than nothingness and must be given due respect. She thinks it’s like the grass on Lose Hill, that doesn’t muddy where others have been, but tilts gold at certain times of day, and leads her down from the top.

In Tibetan, shul is the impression left after whatever made it has gone. Envies the Birds is the tarmac blueprint where a tower block once stood, “the channel worn through rock where a river runs in flood, the indentation in the grass where an animal slept last night”.
