In Plants Beyond Desire Ayşegül Yıldırım shows that looking after plants — actions she also prescribes for writing poems: “watering, fertilising, weeding, providing shade or sunshine” — stimulates a predisposition to nurture, stirring the part of our psyche where love mixes with beauty, amidst the capitalist destruction of the planet. Plants Beyond Desire is green fingered, full of deft and delicate poems enthral to the rhizomatic world. Yıldırım offers an original and enticing style of eco-poetry.
