Description

Phrases like ‘climate emergency’ and ‘ecological breakdown’ are just not going away, they highlight a reality. Not only a potential future, but something well and truly underway for many lives across the planet. Increasingly it is bursting through the fault lines of our daily lives – if nowhere else, then certainly in our minds. Speaking from his lived experience of mental instability Tom explores in his book the myriad emotions around this existential threat as he searches for light, wrestles with hard truths and seeks to build solidarity. The poetry is vivid, lyrical and profound clearly coming from a place of deep feeling.

Tangled Yet Coiled is a collection of 22 poems exploring the climate emergency, the unifying potential of nature, and experiences of wilderness that vault the ego, that captivate and sustain. There is a strong thread of dissonance and uncertainty in these pages, as Tom interrogates where mental health intersects with these issues. But ultimately, it is written with the hope of turning powerlessness into small acts of courage and championing the natural beauty found in humans and all living things.
