Interview with Amy Moretsele

Why 'Fuckery'?
I called the series Fuckery because it felt like the perfect word to describe the work and this particular period in my life.
What inspired the series?
The idea for the first Fuckery started out by me writing a nonsense poem (Cactypus) out of procrastination and thinking 'hey, this is pretty damn funky, I should just write a book full of weird poems'. At the time I wanted to create and achieve something other than the ordinary academic expectations. After writing Cactypus and even up until publishing, even though I'd set myself that goal, part of me thought I wouldn't go through with it, it was like a dare I'd given myself. But I did and I'm continuing on, with Fuckery 2.0 out and Fuckery the Third around the corner. Fuckery has become both the tiny, insignificant mark I'm making on the world and an outlet for myself.
What can we expect from the next Fuckery?
The inspirational vegetable and fridge-freezer poems will feature again; there might be another Le Boog but it may also end there. A new weird humour poem will definitely be included, it's called Compliments and also more of the seriousness found in Fuckery 2.0. I'm trying to advance both as a writer and person, so I hope to work hard and have my poetry advance with me.

The second in the Fuckery poetry series written by Brit teen Amy Moretsele, Fuckery 2.0 is just as mind-bendingly quirky as the first. It contains the same refreshingly weird humour found prior - personified vegetables and fridge-freezers, as well as a part two to the Fuckery original Le Boog. But also has a newfound darkness. If you ever thought poetry was dull, read Fuckery and think again.

The very short, quirky poetic works of a girl in her late-ish teens. Under twenty poems long, this book is filled with both sincerity and nonsense, is both amusing and sobering with the context of the poems ranging from personified vegetables and fridge-freezers to dissatisfaction and frustration at societal expectations.
