"October on Earth / and distinctly autumnal"
The Hidden Histories podcast.
What I can remember are taxis and a long walk by the docks. . .
“Edges: where owls and snow drift / down, spill quietly and stifle”
“Then – surprise – a pale sun picks at a slit / in the paper sky.”
“You won’t be sure of its arrival / until it rolls up to your curb”
New poetry from John Kinsella.
First published in the New Statesman on 23 October 1920.
“And though sometimes the weather is extreme / It seems no more so than when we were young. . .”
I lie in bed until The World at One, / why should my heart go off with an alarm?
Knuckled may lie this dark of earth. . .
From Trump to Brexit, the world is changing fast - and we need intelligent, incisive journalism more than ever.
