ternura / tenderness, a poetry chapbook from bottlecap press

“Orchestrating an impasto collection of emotive and tonal shifts, from softly spoken to defiant, it is clear to me that Yanni’s poetic presence is waxing, a glimmering orb amongst other contemporary constellations. Reading one moreish poem catalyses an urgent desire for the next, a clever domino effect that interlinks subjective schemas with well-articulated energy.” (reviewed by Alice Hill-Woods for Spam Magazine)
