A homage to Rotterdam poet, Rieneke Minderman-Grobben (1944-2018). Rieneke only
wrote by hand, often about everyday life in the Rotterdam neighbourhood of Charlois.
This first English translation of her poems includes images of her concrete poetry in public
space, and is published as part of Charlois Speciaal, 2018.
