This week’s Friday Poem is ‘Skype’ by Martyn Crucefix from his collection The Lovely Disciplines.
We were fortunate enough to hear Martyn read this poem during our Stay-at-Home Series event yesterday evening.
Displaying his characteristic flair, craft and intelligence, Crucefix’s poems often begin with the visible, the tangible, the ordinary, yet through each act of attentiveness and the delicate fluidity of the language they re-discover the extraordinary in the everyday.
‘…highly wrought, ambitious, thoughtful – and very good.’ – The Sunday Times
