A debut collection by Haidee Kruger

Haidee Kruger, whose work has appeared in Green Dragon, is due to have her debut poetry collection, Lush: poems for four voices, published later this month by Protea Books. The book will be launched at Poetry Africa in Durban in October and distributed via bookstores countrywide. The estimated retail price is R100.
Here is a poem from the collection:


the dog dug up
the last of
your sunflowers


they were getting
to be

rather beautiful
