In Turning Thirty and Other Poems Deepa Kylasam Iyer becomes the story teller of outer landscapes as well as the inner mindscape that brim with rich effervescence. The outer and inner world mirror themselves in a way, countering and complementing each other. We meet minds wandering without bodies and forms searching for new meanings. The contested past questions the quelled present, what is lost comes wandering into worlds where they can no longer belong. Through the magic and logic of poetry, the utmost we can hope for is to make a little sense of things- from disembodied thoughts, to beastly mirages and imaginary friends.
