About the poet
Lavinia Greenlaw was born in London, where she has lived for most of her life. Her teenage years...
A form of speech
Stories change shape in the telling
As words alter through long use.
This is nothing new
But it's close to home
Which might colour my view (were I have to one).
It's not exactly light, not entirely dark.
I'm saying what happens not naming parts.
