The Coin

My new pamphlet, The Coin, is available now from Broken Sleep Books.

"The poems in this collection are bold, witty, moving and nuanced. Parkin writes about the mother/son relationship in a way that is poignant, but not sentimental."
- Wendy Pratt, When I Think of My Body as a Horse

This Fruiting Body

My debut collection, This Fruiting Body, is available from Nine Arches Press.

"Parkin’s poems are infinitely lavish and full of wit, morphing human and more-than-human bodies in a post-human lyric disco lit with ecological thought."
- Samantha Walton, Everybody Needs Beauty
