Poem of the Day
The consensus is you are reading
or were that day
the camera snapped you
in your half-world, a mothy flicker
evoking open-mouthed wonder in ours.
Whisper it through the walls, wee yin.
We have forgotten.
The secrets heard
when gravity first pulls
on the silvery shadow.
We thank the Arts Council England for their support and assistance in this interactive Project.
