              Somewhere a cleaner Poems by cleaners from around New Zealand During the Covid-19 pandemic, we've all been thinking about essential services. Including cleaning. Cleaning is universal. It's steeped in tradition and culture. It's essential, it's ordinary and it's surprisingly poet...ic. Somewhere a cleaner captures the spirit, the highs and the lows, of this occupation that often falls below the radar. The poems range across hospitals, offices, marae, clocks, schools, boat hulls, sneakers and more. The poets themselves, a mix of novice and established writers, are equally diverse. Through songs, rhymes, deeply insightful poems and poignant small stories, this anthology gives a voice to a profession both invisible and indispensable. Endorsement: Having walked the corridors of hospitals for more than a few years, I can tell you that cleaners can sometimes be the best doctors of all. And now I find they can write some great poems too. This book is wonderfully democratic. The art here is in the work done before and beyond the writing. The endless picking up, mopping, smoothing and shining. And always, it seems, for someone else. These are poems with strong forearms. My deepest congratulations to every poet in this collection - and my long overdue thanks. I will never walk on a neatly mopped floor again. - Glenn Colquhoun

              A girl carries a tray of eggs on her fingertips, a man plays a cello in a field, a woman buys a carpet sweeper - these moments of everyday life are deceptively simple. Underneath, something else is going on - a sense of mystery, an awareness of impending death, a wry view of huma...n nature. Some of these poems tell a story, some offer an insight, some offer a moment of lyrical beauty. Together, they invite the reader to pause, pay attention, and listen.
