Here's a second draft of the poem I posted earlier in the week. I've addressed the clutter that Jim identified and added the paraphernalia associated with the sequence. Again, it won't stay up for long.
I am a poet and short-story writer based in North-East England. My first full collection, The Corner of Arundel Lane and Charles Street, was published by Salt in 2009 and was shortlisted for the Aldeburgh First Collection Prize and the Portico Prize for Literature. I teach creative writing at Northumbria University.
