Safe Metamorphosis is the debut poetry collection from Hip-Hop artist and spoken word poet Otis Mensah, Sheffield’s first Poet Laureate.

Mensah’s work challenges dominant modes of masculinity, and disrupts the elitism of poetry through its accessible, honest, raw and intimate language and rhythms. Safe Metamorphosis explores the transformations experienced in everyday life and the unspoken traumas caused by the uprooting of self as we are thrusted from one identity-building state to another. For Mensah, poetry and Hip-Hop are a stimulus for philosophical reflection and introspection, and the poems in this collection welcome us into the imaginative and highly observant mind of an artist committed to the healing and unifying power of communication.
