Benjamin Cusden writes from the "hard and cold" reality of living on the streets, where "sympathy is a starving bird". There's advice for those newly homeless, existing in a 'murder of doorways", of the need to move on, the need to "rearrange bits of yesterday to be ready for tomorrow". Cut The Black Rabbit is a tough but tender read, with Cusden being one who knows how to "camouflage your being with evening air" and how to scrape by "with laughter and lager".' Katrina Naomi 'Vividly expressing the reality of living homeless exposed to the elements and the disregard and violence of strangers, these poems range from the darkly playful to difficult to read, and are just as difficult to ignore.'
