All Just, David Herd's second Carcanet collection, makes poems from the fractured phrases and competing idioms of contemporary movement, its translations between public and private spaces. Conversations start and are broken off. Public announcements intervene in private situations. In the background, an emergency is about to unfold. Taking bearings from Dover and London, from elegy and protest, from official structures that determine where people can go, and the futures that cross them, All Just explores the social spaces in which we all move. It asks what it means to be at large in the world, and what language we have to document the journey.
