Over at Seatree, we have had some more copies of Chris’s books printed for direct sales. This meant another print run, and as ever, we got a couple of proofs printed to check before the larger run… all of which means that we have proof copies of ‘Listing’ and ‘Where the streams come from’ up for grabs. FOR FREE! We will even pay postage.
(One book has a couple of typos, but if you are anything like Chris, you will never notice them!)
To enter our little free draw, all you have to do is to visit our facebook page and post a comment in the giveaway post. Perhaps tell us your favourite poem (even if it is not one of Chris’s!) or even post a few lines of your own?
(If you are not on FB, drop us a line and we will enter you anyway!)
We’ll feed your name into our magic randomiser, then contact the winners directly.
Meanwhile, here is a newish poem, as yet unpublished, to whet your poetic whistles;
Written in ‘Bookpoint, for ‘National poetry day’ 2018
So many books
Every spine like undrunk wine
Every page contagious
For words weigh nothing here
They are floating free
while I sup tea.
Perhaps two or three might land on me-
Like birds – or spores – or seeds,
For I am the soil in winter.
High on a shelf
sits poor Gandalf.
Atticus Finch is caught in a clinch
with Molly Bloom.
Tom Sawyer hides poor Jim
In the bottom drawer.
Moriarty invites Jack Kerouac
to party out back.
roams the moor no more
She drinks tea with me
