I have received two complimentary copies of magazines today, each of which features poetry of mine. The first is issue 60 of Smoke, a magazine produced in Liverpool by the Windows Project, Liver House, 96 Bold Street, Liverpool L1 4HY. They have published my poem I hate all flowers, which is a lithopoema I wrote in 2010. [By the way, for those of you who are not familiar with the city of Liverpool, although the city’s prefix is pronounced as in the bodily organ, such places as ‘Liver House’ are pronounced ‘lie-vur’ – just saying.]
