Bark, Xylem


Bark, Xylem
Richard Skelton

Edition of 100

Fourteen poems and fragments of the wood and field – a stark, urgent collection of voices, songs and petitions written between 2009 and 2012.

    “I have saved
    these words for you
    held them in my mouth
    between tooth and tongue
    thorn and branch
    unvoiced until now
    when they fall
    but necessary
    like leaves”
