This week’s Friday Poem is ‘Afon Rhymni’ by Robert Walton which appears in his collection Sax Burglar Blues as well as our Poems from Cardiff pamphlet.
The poems in Sax Burglar Blues range from vivid memories of childhood, such as ‘Twm Siôn Cati’ where a teacher ‘wiry-haired, fierce-eyed’ brings a fictional villain to life, banging out rhythms with her shoe on the floor of a Cardiff classroom, to memories of a rock-and-roll influenced youth on the back of the Dusty Springfield night bus, or an archetypal narrative of getting kicked out of a band just before they hit the big time. (‘Three Out of Four Original Members’).
