Unlike the vast, unknowable underworld, the field in which human activities take place is but a thin film on the Earth’s crust. Delving towards telluric intensities, SUBTEXTS is a collection of geopoetic, sublithic writing – an earthward analytical offshoot exploring Nature’s underbelly and its chaotic psychic propensities. Poetry, art writing and essay come together in this mysterious anthology, to give silhouette to what lurks beneath.
