The Essential Will Carrie
‘There is no way to harvest from the centre. It’s overgrown with bitter roots gone wild’.
Following the obscure track to the field’s edge might be the way to make sense of a world in tumult and change. There, where ideas converge and jostle for emergence, you might still find a story to believe in, a voice to speak to you.
This collection of poems roams from the streets to the woodlands, jabbing at the banality of ‘the way things are’ whilst pressing deeper into the shunned country of the archaic.
We know the world is changing but what way shall we go now? Dark shapes on the horizon pull us ever closer, might we still find some other to stem our advance? But, if the magic we seek still drifts on the back roads of the islands, what use are the enchanted if they set themselves apart?
Sardonic and spiritual this collection is an attempt, through its characters and descriptions, to wake up to what’s really real.
