Rory Botha's cover illustration for this volume is of two angels taking their dog for a fly. The winged dog is on a lead. It is the latter detail which, I think, is especially fitting. Despite the volume's title, the poems we find in it are not so much airborne, as it were, as they are born from within a web - one might say a safety-net - of human relations.
