2018.  A hand-stitched, limited edition pamphlet, arranged in two parts (Rue des Hiboux and A Footnote to the Above).  Article 50 could be subtitled Abhorrence and its Opposite.  In a series of passionate lyrical poems, Kelvin Corcoran sets the current self-destructive politics of the UK and its implausible actors alongside those things worth living for: music, friendship and poetry itself.  Click here to read a poem from the pamphlet.

The moon has made the sea milky,
opaque the memory of our commonweal,
that lost country where we once followed
a different life in the nation of now.
