Poetry: Kōiwi Kōiwi | Bone Bone by Hinemoana Baker
In her compelling second collection of poetry Hinemoana Baker amplifies what’s usually whispered, magnifies the microscopic, and x-rays the mundane. Baker is a writer, musician, and sound artist living on Wellington’s Kapiti Coast. Born in Christchurch, she has traveled widely, and was 2009 Arts Queensland Poet in Residence. Her first book, published jointly by Victoria University Press and in the US by Perceval Press, was mātuhi | needle.
