“Britain has also been overtaken by bigotry and fear, and recently enacted Article 50 of the Lisbon treaty to break away from the European Union. I am now a citizen of not one but two countries whose global brand is essentially, ‘Let us be a warning to you all.’”

Robert Peake – HOMESICKNESS

Perched in the crotch of a tree
contrails race toward intersection
drawing sutures across the sky
tightening our hold on the narrative
that the operation has been a success
the patient is recovering nicely—
O exquisite corpse of my homeland,
(poetry diary  230-4/8/17)
