I got a lovely surprise the other day when this book of poetry arrived in the post. Emily Benton from The School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia had been trawling through some images on line in search of something to put on the front cover for their current year’s anthology of student’s poems. She happened to come across one of my posts on here, My Nativity, A Soupy Opera – a series of photos I took whilst going through the car wash – and got in touch with me to ask if they could use one of the images. Of course, I said yes and this is the result.
Picking up the book just now, I randomly flicked through its pages only to alight on a page where there was a poem called, 10th February. As it happens to be 10th February today, I took a picture of it to include it here. It is written by Paul Frederik Carlson.
