THE OBLIVIOUS WHALE by Graham Hamilton
THE OBLIVIOUS WHALE deals with landscape, nature, the seasons and the human condition. Graham Hamilton’s writing style is in turn sombre, lyrical and playful. There’s a strong sense of immediacy in place and relationship in some of the poems.
“It’s flat here
long, hot and flat.
The sky is spread, heavy,
like thick butter on a doorstep.
on my shirt as I cycle onwards east,
pushing past power lines that swoop like swallows
over the still corn.”
