This book contains mature themes. If you are below 15 years of age, we recommend you do not continue reading.

i baked you something special with materials from earth;

where the sweet and sour tastes of love 

—the desire, yearning, surviving, and the healing—

flow through into our world

and into our cakes

so here i tell you 

this is a love letter

filled with my open bleeding heart

in hopes you will come to resonate

with the way my cake is baked.


Over the course of 2022, a select group of young writers was invited to take part in a year-long writing program at Story Factory. Their goal was to produce a collection of poetry. This is one of the collections produced in these workshops. 

Year of Poetry 2022 was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund and Parramatta Leagues Club.
