How much time and energy does it take to fall in love? Or rinse mottled wings? Does Alexandra Kollontai represent a spectre of utopian promises, or merely a blank space for fantasies of desire and revolution? This series of poems takes us through nineties socialist science fiction, family abolition, mulberry lipstick, shirts, cardigans, maxi dresses, hyenas, quitting work and spells cast with yeast extract. It is poetry for girls, poetry for communism; it’s poetry for history and for the impossible future.
