My Honest Poem is a moving and powerful poetry collection that follows recovery from a life fractured by family violence and addiction. It is a coming-of-age story of a young New Zealand woman rebuild... ing strength and hope in the spaces left by trauma. At six, my mother's boyfriend forced his fat hairy hand inside my heart-shaped face for eating too many Fruit Bursts. We bought a tube of them at BP wrapped individually in pastel wax papers which littered the backseat like sweet-smelling confetti; his hand tasted of salt a metallic tang of rust the hot edge of petrol from the pump still lingering on his fingers.

What happens if the goods are damaged when I open them up?

We can discuss replacement or refund options, and will have the courier driver collect the damaged item and return it to us. Please Contact Us
