Solutio and Singapore

Eshuneutics reviews my poems Equal to the Earth, focusing on the alchemical meaning of the sea.(A longer review is forthcoming.) Harry Rutherford reads my book as part of the Read the World Challenge. So, for one, I am the Solutio, for another, I am Singapore. Coincidentally, both live in the UK. What do we make of this?

Not that I necessarily read it as representative of Singapore — something Singapore's government might be pleased to hear, I guess. I was planning to read it anyway and the fact that you tick that particular box was just a bonus.

A discussion of the Singaporeanness of your poetry might be quite interesting, but I'm not really the person to conduct it.
