‘Not late in her book Four Degrees of Separation, the third poem to be precise, Rochelle Potkar defines the edges of the poetic prowess that is to follow. In a small poem titled ‘Doggerel,’ Potkar describes the essence of her poems, and of the personality of the poet. She writes of herself as “The one who was completely out of rhyme, out of tune, out of line, out of time” (Potkar 2016: 7). These lines reflect the spirit of the Self and the World, an idea that continues in her poem ‘Pivot,’ undoubtedly one of the best poems in the collection.’
