Matt Robinson is in the best sense a poet of the domestic, his intense curiosity animating a renewed engagement with things familiar—the intellectual life of the family dog, a favourite pair of jeans, sports, local landmarks and relationships. In these poems, Robinson approaches each subject with vivid imagery and the intellectual terseness of a logical proposition, playfully reminding us of the “uneven arithmetic” that invigorates poetic language.
