'Mine is the poetry of the unpoetic'


Poetry is something I do; poems, things I make. Perhaps what I most enjoy is when something is done
when I’ve gone as far as I can, as far as my technique is capable of or as far as the material mysteriously lets me... Mine is the poetry of the unpoetic: everyday interaction, science, history…  Ordinary and specialist terms fuse. The poet distils, but also detects misuses of, language’s power.
