Stepping over Seasons artfully depicts the finer details of life, encapsulating change within people and places as the seasons unfurl. In ‘Overlook’, Capes argues that it’s much easier for great poets to romanticise the world’s most classic cities by poetically and playfully ridiculing his own not-so-romantic Australian hometown. Asserting that, in this digital age, everything can be recorded in some way, the poem ‘Late Night’ claims there is no longer a need for people to appreciate things “in the moment”. The poem ‘Leaking’ describes the love seeping out of two people with the momentum of a leaking tap.

Title: Stepping Over Seasons
Author: Ashley Capes
by the curve a teacup sits on the sink shoe-brown inside, imagined marks where you held it, not by the handle but by the curve, to fit a palm aching from winter and the rest of the kitchen looks a little strained – ant-killers nest against the foggy window and cutlery stands like a palisade but somehow your teacup shrugs off pain with a sweeping shadow cast low over the dish-rag, to me it looks like you might return at any minute.
