Open Slowly by Dayle Furlong young lovers tangle, tumble and dance their way through the urban landscape. They lose each other and rediscover each other in cafes and bars, over lattes and beer while the city watches and waits for solitude to reassert itself. As the title suggests this is a book to be opened slowly, savoured like a surprise gift from a lover who will inevitably be forgotten, even while the gift remains.
“Open Slowly is contemporary poetry at its finest, accessible to the average reader while still providing much to ponder.”—Anna Horner, Diary of an Eccentric
“A mesmerizing collection of poems”—Savvy Verse & Wit
