The Guardian Poem Of The Week

Naomi Foyle Page

——————————————

Poet Carol Rumens recently featured my poem ‘Your Summer Arm’ on her weekly blog for The Guardian.   Here is the poem, and should you wish to witness the gladitorial contest that ensued … the link is below …

 

Your Summer Arm

                       

Was it an odd sort of cricket

climbing my oak dresser?  No ―                      

an emerald shield bug, you said,

watching as I tried to slide

 

a piece of A4 paper

beneath its crooked legs.

When a foot caught, and tore,

I thought we both might cry.

 

*

 

Where is grass to comfort that green?

Those sweet, young shoots

I slipped from their sheaths

and chewed with wobbly teeth?

 

Now, as we curl into bed,

outside in the whistling damp

the husk I dismembered today

begins to decay in the leaves.

 

*

 

This whirring of thoughts,

rustle of pages,

mean nothing to you

anymore. 

 

Your breathing is so quiet,

I’d hardly know you were there

if it wasn’t for the glowing limb

buried in my hair.

This blog gives news and reviews of Waterloo Press poets their readings and publications.

And also notices about poetry readings and festivals in the UK and abroad.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Waterloo Press is a publisher with a proven track record in producing high-quality volumes of poetry. It’s already a co-winner in Staple’s Alt-Gen niche poetry publisher competition. Individual collections too have been praised in Poetry Review, and by its 2002-05 editor Robert Potts and others for sheer beauty of production – as well as the contents! Some say there’s been nothing like us since Trigram Press in the 1970s. That’s heady, but we’re delighted.

Waterloo has three aims:

to promote regional poets on a national and international basis;

to promote established or long-neglected modern and modernist poets with a broad appeal on the same footing;

and to provide a forum for all those in a specially bound Arts bi-annual journal with the broadest appeal of all (Eratica).

Originally dependent on its founder and main benefactor, Sonja Ctvrtecka, and a variety of funding sources, since November 2004 Waterloo has been supported by major annual Arts Council Grants.
