Kate Scott's pamphlet is out and about. Escaping the Cage has a gorgeous cover design. The poems inside look innocent enough at first, then knock you off your cosy chair when you're least expecting it.
At least they knocked me off mine. Of course, Kate's not a 'new' poet. Her first collection was Peterloo in 2003, so there's been a long gestation here. And these are poems worth waiting for.
Interesting stuff going on in the HappenStance back bedroom. It's been straight from Kate Scott, who sends a shiver down my spine, to laughing out loud when wrestling (metaphorically of course) with Graham Austin and Martin Parker.
But more of the bad boys shortly. . . .
