“oakley’s considered words speak beautifully of the belligerence that has become our everyday. It is epic in its ache and soothing in its soulfulness.”
“truthful, damning, cathartic.
oakley’s collection speaks of the rotting mulch we live in, hoping for new shoots to sprout.”
“a precious work holding an energy that makes the reader exhale in awe between each poem; oakley is really something.”
—Caleb Femi—Young People’s Laureate for London
