…I cannot communicate
in monosyllables anymore
I would not love the ocean
if she were shallow
and I cannot love you
so I will stop
like a hurricane before its death…
PASSAGE (PAPERFIELDS PRESS, 2015)
AVAILABLE IN PRINT & EBOOK
Take a poetic sojourn on the bridge between dream and reality.
In her second book of poetry, Bianca Bowers shifts between consciousness and sleep, reality and dreams, as she seeks to find passage in a restless landscape.
“My feet were fused with a 7-lane highway. My spine, dismantled; a map of bones with no instruction.”
Passage is a surreal and real exploration of the transient spaces that have the power to destabilise our relationships, identity, and sense of belonging.
“My ghost beckons me into the misty pines and I follow, like Autumn.”

PRESSED FLOWERS (PAPERFIELDS PRESS, 2017)
EBOOK COMING SOON
We pick flowers, knowing they will die.
We press flowers, hoping they will survive.
When flowers are picked, they die. But not always. Sometimes we love them enough to press them between the pages of a book in the hopes of preserving the beauty of their memory.
So it is when a poem is read. It dies. But not always. Like flowers, there are some poems we want to preserve, remember, and cherish. Those are the poems we press between the pages of a book.
This ebook is a collection of my pressed flowers. Those poems I wish to preserve from my retired and active books.
Thanks for supporting my work, Bianca xo
