Sketching the childhood relationship between two brothers, the poems often settle on small objects - shrimps, cigarettes, cats eyes, plastic soldiers - to which childhoods may become attached. Beginning with the west coast of Ireland, particularly the tiny islands where human settlement has ceased, the book travels outward, geographically and thematically, through a wide variety of lyric, comic and dramatic forms.

These patterns act to include the smaller, remembered patterns of an Irish childhood into the larger shapes of adulthood and the adult world.
