A slim volume of poems …

Interference effect frontJust a little blog from me HERE (via The Worshipful Company of Management Consultants – unlikely bedfellows, you may think!) about putting together my slim volume of poems … ‘It may only be a slim volume of 51 pages, easily lost on a book shelf, but to me it’s a slice of my life which I offer up in the hope that someone somewhere may find something in it that resonates with them, invites them to see life slantwise and find something new in doing so.’

‘This collection flickers with language as quick as the fish that swim in the poems, as the butterfly whose “light interference” is as real as it is suggestive, as illusory as it is sensuous. Meaning turns in a flick of a word, a phrase, an image, the familiar made strange: family love, sexual love, grief are turning silvers in darkness, the other side of the ordinary.’ — GILLIAN CLARKE

‘Everything here is thrillingly both “itself and something other”. Like little translations or ventures into “as if”, the poems draw us into a re-invigorated world of fishy glittering and butterfly glint. Dyer tells us the Chinese character for “poem” is “word–temple”; her poems are themselves little temples we enter dusty and over-familiar yet exit more alert to the world around us and our inner weathers’ — MARTYN CRUCEFIX
