We are small is a new book of tipp-ex poetry, a successor to Let us go then, you and I which was published in 2003. While the latter book was based on a fragment of a T.S. Eliot poem, We are small reflects on the non-literary object of a letter. On each page the complete text of this letter is printed, but parts of it are tipp-exed, or made white (tipp-ex is the European word for what in the US is called whiteout). In this manner new poems are revealed that were already present in the original text.
