This was written as a free-write exercise while my train was delayed in Bristol and then while I was on the next train I finished it off. Not really sure what I think ah well. A short quasi-story about a lecturer drinking coffee before their lecture. However, the drinking soon leads the narrator to ascribe existential speculative problems onto the protagonist.
A triptych on the process of writing poetry. Each example grapples with a difficulty in writing (and reading) poetry, and all at least engage with different philosophies that compose poetry. Each poem has more or less been influenced by Henryk Górecki's third symphony and the implications of its second movement, lento e lento.
