In his latest tranche of poems, Wright delves deep to mine his childhood and explore his experiences as an adopted person. Here be pocket monsters, tower blocks that were almost home, and a young family hiding in a Zimbabwean field.

These poems are full of guts and dust, navigating fatherhood with two growing sons as the faces of a birth family emerge from the shadows of social media.

Wright's poems entreat the reader to put down the screen and be in the moment, engaging with the big life question we are too often afraid to ask:
