An impressive twenty poems. Ingham’s language is so striking and exact that it feels four-dimensional. … Each poem in this pamphlet is equally precise and masterfully draws us in layer by layer, the rich and ordinary details bringing us to wider and surprising truths.
clare e. potter on Naming Bones in Poetry Wales
This collection, full of strong, clear, vivid poems, positively bulges with love. And it explores our difficulty containing it, … the too-muchness of things. … She writes exquisitely of nature, including our place in it, and physical love.
