Thomas A. Clark: A Preview

The poetry of Thomas A. Clark has been consistently attentive to form and to the experience of walking in the landscape, returning again and again to the lonely terrain of the Highlands and Islands.

Thomas A. Clark will read with Matthew Welton at our next event on June 14th at The Castle Hotel, Manchester. More details HERE

Here are two examples of his work:

lapping of the little waves
breaking of the little waves
spreading of the little waves
idling of the little waves
