Selected Poems

Generous selection of work previously published in Dark Glasses and The Ballad of the Yorkshire Ripper, along with a number of new poems, including the ‘Kindertotenlieder’ (poems on the death of children) and ‘Madrigalia’, a sequence of love poems exploring misunderstandings between men and women.

‘Our bodies in the shower.
The hisp and plather
of skins under the water.
The smoke coming off us.
The stream within the stream.
We were rinsed clean
of everything but desire.’
