Burning Books- Shaun Belcher
Poems 2016 - 2017

Horseshoe Press Pamphlet No. 2

Horseshoe Press Pamphlet No. 2 is a baker's dozen of poems and a short story.

Contains the flagrant deracination of a mind made febrile by compromise now lashing out at this lotteryland disunited kingdom as it drifts into barbarity, euro scepticism and outright zenophobia...

An apt rejoinder to the post Brexit daze of summer...the cover photo is a plaque on a bank wall in Dusseldorf.....an apt symbol of present priorities. We are all buying time these days....
