This microchapbook explores the idea of giving a voice to the inanimate, through imagining a letter written from a person's bed sheets. When I started writing this piece, I was looking at writing a poem distanced from the ‘I’ which I find myself writing most often; I wanted to instead write from the perspective of something that does not have a voice of its own. Sheets are witness to a huge portion of humans’ lives: sleep, sorrow, romance, sex, death, and more. By using this voice I delved into a voyeuristic but gentle observation of a place in which humans are often at their most vulnerable.

Our sheets are primarily places of comfort and solace, but also isolation. I was intrigued by the concept of what people are like when they think nothing is watching – when they are allowed to be their barest self. It may read like a confession or a love letter, and I think to each person it will vary depending on their own relationship with sheets and sleep – one of the few activities all humans partake in. This book is a fragmented narrative, of flashes of actions and images that give us an insight into the person’s life through the moments that they spend in their bed.

Though it doesn't have quite the same novelty of the small paper copy, a digital version of our microchapbooks is the perfect choice for international readers, who may find the cost of shipping a physical copy to be prohibitive. This digital version is an alternative to the print microchap and contains a digital PDF copy of the same poem featured in a hardcopy but in a larger digital page size.

The poem was decent. I would be interested in reading more of their work, however this particular piece didn't really speak to me. But to each their own. Id still recommend this shop.
