Linda Kemp’s Lease Prise Redux

64 poems of fourteen (!) lines each. Such as: ‘Homelessness | spiders out | the majority of participants | O curb! O vultures! | freedom is mad inside’. Or: ‘the IMF walks the streets at night | if to suck on children’.

‘a cumulative impact which slowly seeps in, like a kaleidoscope of slow-moving debt, arrears and social smallness’. [Stuart Calton]
