With my brand new, and attractively-priced Blue Snowball Ice microphone I recorded a reading for The Island Review, with their hashtag #islandreadings. If you’ve not visited their site you should do. It harbours all kinds of good things there.
The Remembering Cliffs is an old poem, in fact one I wrote in my twenties, eventually collected in A Guernsey Double (2010) my collection with Richard Fleming. It was also republished online by The Island Review a few years back. If I had to pick my handful of my poems which were most heartfelt this would be one of them. Funnily enough it was written at a time of great personal anxiety, back in the 80s, and it has a self-soothing quality which I hope works for other people too.
I hope you like this. The island review page is here. Big thanks to its editor Jordan Ogg.
And here is my reading.
