Sounds of the Real World
Our latest poetry publication is Sounds of the Real World by Gordon Meade.
Sounds of the Real World is partly a bestiary, where man and creature are ‘separated by nothing but a pane of glass’. The sea is ‘a simmer in a pan’ throughout, charting the poet’s move from his native Scotland to inner city London. Gordon Meade is not just standing and staring at nature; these poems offer social commentary as well as candid reflections on relationships, memory and mortality.
