Split Screen


There's a new poetry collection out now called Split Screen — poems inspired by film and television.  I have a poem in there called Halifax, inspired (if that's the right word) by their inane advertising. More details here.


No longer from Halifax, no longer a bank,
but a notional music radio station,
peopled by people who find things funny
that are not funny, who find things great
that are not great, who find things fun
that are not fun, who would be first
against the wall when the revolution comes,
if it hadn’t already come, and gone.
