Pedicure by Tom Betteridge from Sine Wave Peak

P E D I C U R E

a new book of poems by Tom Betteridge
published by Sine Wave Peak
January 2017

Pedicure remains a pleasure, read at any speed or hovered over. Filtered through a fairy feller’s garden of delights, music layers merge as language zooms through thought to focus bracketed by timed description. Pages twitch body pollen mist to drift across purls in wine. All this under a Gulley Jimson foot: on record, grateful.”
