Aram Saroyan, Light – out from sine wave peak

Aram Saroyan, ‘light’
‘light’ is a poem-card intended for display. A single word, light, is debossed onto black card – literally made of light. When there is no light to catch it, the word vanishes. It is revealed only from angles around the room when light, pooling briefly in the furrows of the word’s impression, speaks. As a new work by the author of the controversial poem ‘lighght’ (1965), ‘light’ (2016) – an unprinted poem on a black page – is also a gentle nod back, a witty return, a final condensation.


Preview of Other Room reader – Peter Hughes

Peter Hughes will read at The Other Room on 10th June, 7pm, alongside Amy Cutler and Luke Allan.

I sometimes wrote in Italian, in an exploratory kind of way, just for myself, in notebooks. I didn’t try to publish it. Mainly I contented myself with reading Italian, and sometimes translating from Italian into English.
