Published by Scarlet Imprint

The lady of moth and moon unfurls her shy and deadly petals. These navigators of the midnight sea – occultists and poets and devotees seeking after that which seduces them – are familiar with the dream of intoxication that follows her scent. She is the woman in the song, the night-blooming narcotic, gorgeous and strange. She is the horned blossom, the guardian of the threshold, the keeper of madness.

This collection includes recognised major poets, we are indebted in particular to Penelope Shuttle for her contribution and that of Peter Redgrove. From triadic rubaiyat to sestina, acrostic, lyric, free verse and praise hymn this is poetry in full flower.

Datura contains modern published poets alongside new writers whose work shows them strong enough to keep such company.
This is a literate and narcotic text which will inspire both ritual practice and further incursions into living poetry.

A companion volume, Mandragora is now available.
