From the publisher

Two Twin Pipes Sprout Water brings together five discrete sequences of poems and poem- stories. Moving through different voices and times, landscapes and interiors, Lila Matsumoto’s new collection offers a sense of the world as an observed tableau, inviting the reader to participate in a creation of a strange yet familiar world full of ordinary-extraordinary moments.

Two Twin Pipes Sprout Water is a Winter 2021 Poetry Book Society Recommendation.

‘A real quantum strangeness abounds in Lila Matsumoto’s poems – actual glimpses of life’s fast-running plurality, all the sprouting impressions and perspectives, in misleadingly tidy sentences that unfold like intricate inventions.’ – Sam Riviere
