Lurking in the prose of Verandah, is the repressed memory of your ‘First Date’, that disappointing ‘Dinner with Dad’, a vague image of geometric retinal imprints and zeros, plump and exhausted, recorded from astronomy lectures. Buckets catching the night? The poetics of glass? And what does that cockroach really represent? Uncanny is the word that comes to mind, when you thumb through the pages of the collective imagination of these writers and artists.
