Forgotten ~ Simon Howard
chapbook [rcp cb25] A6 32pp landscape
£5.00 inc. p&p (UK)
Forgotten

The poems of Forgotten zig-zag down the pages like falling leaves, or a hare’s flight through stubble, or attempts to escape tear-gas and kettling, or long flights of stairs through a void, each insubstantial step of which needs to be tested. It’s hard to move with confidence. The surroundings and the very language have been undermined. The danger is not imaginary. Everything is at stake. Getting through the next day and night will be a substantial achievement, as will reaching the end of the page.

Default Soul, Tim Allen
Chapbook - April 2014
default soul ~ tim allen
“Tim Allen creates a lot of new problems with Default Soul. Each paradox the poem creates is accompanied by the certain feeling of experiencing a paradox, which then works itself out for a line or a stanza as the text becomes a kind of dynamic movement (and not ‘like’ a kind of dynamic movement): “put the sea back where you found it”.

objects ~ andy spragg
chapbook [rcp cb28]
A6 48pp 35 copies
£7.00 inc. p&p (UK)
I’d rather not believe it yet what this book tells me in predated scan. OBJECTS are what kind of scaler is the earth, looking as the future. An OBJECT can be positive flood ache, proleptic Atlantis, a zipping line. Submergence and emergence, forests under water, flicking off sense. This is really good. A rare and budding song of the anthropocene. If I don’t read it I won’t yet know. Deal with it. Without a hood. Read it, without a flick. The rains coming, graphed here, without object leave a hoodless silhouette. Important to care for the destruction zipped off by the illiteral rain. Niagraesque inundation of objects without hood. OBJECTS is Noah with an objective correlate. Go to the plex.

crabtree ~tom jenks
chapbook [rcp cb29]
A6 48pp 35 copies
£7.00 inc. p&p (UK)
Crabtree reads like a cross between Mercian Hymns and Viz, as if Barry MacSweeney’s Ranter has saddled up with Johnny Vegas for a night at the end of Blackpool Pier. Crabtree is a thumbnail guide to a very contemporary England: we never drive far through these umbrous hills before coming to a Travelodge. As the audience delights in the frolics, Jenks, Albion’s greatest surrealist, is found finetuning his metrical gifts : at least that was his excuse for taking longer in the shower. Through the humour of the sequence the shadiness of our times is revealed. I’ll carry mine as a pocket-sized Magna Carta to swat back the saturation of all extraneous data – Chris McCabe

gleams & fractions ~ colin winborn
chapbook [rcp cb30]
A6 60pp 30 copies
£8.00 inc. p&p (UK)
Can seeing be seen? Can the unseen? Colin Winborn’s poems and sequences tussle with these possibilities, these paradoxes until they appear to turn themselves inside out in front of us. This is a vantage-point: the resulting affective echo-chambers seem to see from - and to speak out of - writing itself. The very first line of this new chapbook asks ‘If you can find a language for this’. He does.” –

badlands of the real ~ peter dent
chapbook [rcp cb31]
A6 32pp 40 copies
£6.00 inc. p&p (UK)
INDELIBLE THREAT

Functions at a low ebb. Likelihood expands

as we’re talking. In longhand,
which takes us forever or highlights
what not so excusably serves and passes

for ‘the exploratory’. Meaning, stuffed like
a soft animal. And one a good deal
more adept than the rest. So many

in the herd. To graze a miniature prairie or be sold for a song? Who knowing
the lyrics actually wants it, to be

fumbled for such a weird complexity. Cut.

Badlands of the Real, Peter Dent
