Review of Catmagick by Annie Toy
(freelance journalist, Suffolk)
Sunday morning, thermos of coffee, back to bed and ....cattybliss! Cover to cover in one hit.
The Cheshire Cat: "all things solid are just air": YES! So many beguiling words and images, poetic, painterly, dense layers of sound/meaning. "ashes to wishes, dust to dusk", cravening, Shadowhisker and Thistlewind, Kaffeen, Sophisticat: and the absolute essence of cat-think in the Witching Hour...
Other poems display your empathy through the sensuous awareness of the form and shape, of stroking and softness and comfort. And my favorite one, which I can't find again, how odd, the most mystic one....now I'll have to read them all again.
Verbal mystique and magic.
