A new poetry pamphlet has been published by the marvellous Red Ceilings Press. The book contains 45 couplet poems. I have written 178 poems to date using this structure. This is what Scott Thurston has to say about the collection:
In Davies’ multiverse, everything is alive and unpredictable. In a perpetual motion search for a
container, tubs, pots, boxes, lids, even a bucket, offer their services: ‘what am i now but someone
standing next to a lids’ (sic). Channelling Wittgenstein, Lao Tzu and Robert Grenier, Davies’ double-
line form acts as a strange attractor, drawing in quotidian minutiae alongside visionary
apprehension. This small book is both heavy and light: ‘notice how good i look in this fire engine’,
‘when the final explosions happened’, and to read it is to walk a fine line between comedy and
tragedy: ‘let’s go into those woods / (no)’.
