Infinite Difference, sampler no. 1: Anna Reckin's "Lone Thorn"

With the authors' permission, I am going to publish a small selection of works from the anthology here to promote it. I have had to select from poems that can be easily reproduced in Blogger, which eliminates over half the anthology immediately.


Lone Thorn

Flicker of folklore, mazy as a March weather-vane. Barbed wire, tangles; how quickly sex smells like decay. It's that fining to a point I have a problem with--splitting the thread, draggling the tension. Sparks and crackles, dissipated power. Durst not gather, nor gather round, nor deck with rags

Poor shall, poor may, poor Martha Ray


Anna Reckin


The anthology can be pre-ordered from The Book Depository in the UK and from The Book Depository or Small Press Distribution in the US. And The Book Depository's offering a pre-order special of 25% off!
