Synopsis:

At the very start of us, I foresaw
every possible ending.


Professions is a poet's directory of heartbreak. The backbone of this collection is a cycle of fractured relationships, where professional preoccupations tear lovers apart as distrust and incomprehension brew. Set against this are glimpses of indestructible intimacy — between a mother, a granddaughter, and a friend.

Amanda Chong's poems observe the doomed practice of the heart: solitary experiences, never fully nor mutually understood until too late.
