I said the sea was folded
A fragmentary account of life and its complexities, I said the sea was folded charts the first three years of Erik Jensen’s relationship with his partner, Evelyn Ida Morris. These are love poems, written against the difficulty of understanding another person. They are startling in their simplicity and their frankness.
‘ A full, honest, brave, overflowing heart. Australia has her Emily Dickinson.’ —Kate Jennings
