Synopsis

In The AQI, David Tait examines the world in 4 sections. The first looks at city life: the people within the city; the way people interact within cities; cultural differences; and the surreal-ness he has experienced whilst being a foreigner in China. These poems are seeking to make a connection, or seek an explanation of cultural differences and their complexities. The second section is all about the environment and air pollution. The Air Quality Index, or the AQI, is the measurement of particulate matter in the atmosphere. The AQI examines the effect that this has on day-to-day life, particularly during the winter. The third section relates to human rights, particularly LGBT rights, and the impact of a changing world. The final section tries to find some calm, and to integrate some sense of the pastoral (the world David Tait is from) into the city.
