"With thematic forbears in Genet, Cooper and Wojnarowicz, Devotionals looks at multiple forms of desire through both subjective and objective lenses. Lines are crossed, or unseen - and utterances, instant messages, and human senses interact to procure a new experience. Devotionals is all at once subversive, sexy, beautiful and strange. Read it on your pillow, with the lights down low. Marcus Whale is a musician, writer and artist living in Sydney. This is his first collection of poetry."
