Republished to mark the 20th anniversary of Derek Jarman’s death, this is a facsimile (mistakes and all — see the title) of the director’s poetry. The 32 poems deal mostly
with travel, first love and fantasy/memory, often prefiguring the playfulness of Jarman’s moviemaking. The reflective cover is either a challenging image of self or a way to check your teeth after lunch. You decide.
