POETRY

I have self-published a collection of poetry in English called Queen of Wandering, my poems are included in few anthologies both in Finnish & English, and my debut collection of poetry (in Finnish) called Tequila is to be published by RAIKUU in 2021. My poems misbehave and adventure, drink too much and end up in weird situations – they are unapologetic in their defiance, fragile, kind and naive. Read more about the publications below!

Tequila – seikkailurunoja

Visuaalinen ilme Iris Flinkkilä

Julkaisija PESÄ PUBLISHING. Julkaistaan 2021.

Tequila on ryöppyävä kokoelma seikkailurunoja  rappioromantiikan kääntöpuolelta. Ääneen pääsevät muusat, punapäät, heilat, hullut ja ne, jotka ovat muuten vaan liikaa. Elämänmittaisilla jatkoilla eksytään maailmoihin, jotka ovat realismissaan täynnä paitsi inhoa, myös kiistatonta magiaa ja villiä haavoittuvuutta.

Aamulla, kun hyvät ihmiset pesivät kahvitahroja valkoisista paidoista me
Kalliossa rämisten katuja pitkin revenneissä sukkahousuissa
leikitellen sormissa tulitikkuja
pihlajanmarjoja

Stella!

Se yksi suudelma!

Queen of Wandering

Visual design Jenni Nikinmaa

Queen of Wandering is a self-published collection of misbehaving poems. Printed at Books@One in Louisburgh, Co. Mayo, Ireland in 2019 while I was living above a bookshop with a printing machine.

It was a very lovely month and the friends I made are still wonderful!




“”Other poems in the anthology are more abstract and harder to define. “UNICORNS” by Jenni Nikinmaa discusses a unicorn being found on the side of the road after being involved in a hit and run. The poem contemplates the death of the unicorn and ends on the two cryptic lines: ‘The unicorn neighed. / We are still interpreting its last sentence.'”
