PBS pamphlet choice Winter 2008


Kate Potts is a pickpocket of human experience in this tightly-rhythmed,

assonance-jellied, beetle-drawer of a pamphlet.

Ghost no. 1 from whichever music

Phantom heels stalk the corridor:

click, click. My watery iris

at the fisheye. You are an amalgam

of angles, crystalline in denim.


I snap supermarket bags at your ears,

shuffle crockery, mimic the telephone

with the chirp at the tips of my teeth.

I’m a conjurer of uneasiness, spectre


of barely remembered door keys,

gas hob, medicine, disconsolate

child – your crush of vodka’d limbs.

Mine’s the suspension of breath.


You contemplate chaos, prostration,

beginning again in a new place

under a new name. I am the ice

in your liver – exhaled.
