A collection of poems that plays with ambiguous narration and the exploration of taking apart and rebuilding myth and fairytale. A hint of menace underlies series of letters between an unnamed writer and a figure only referred to by G, offering a glimpse into a world that is both vague and interpretable, at times grappling with its own meta nature.
