About the poet
Tim Liardet was born in London in 1959 and educated at the University of York and characterises...
as thin as a rake. It felt like an act of commitment
and deeper, leaving your head exposed and smoke to rise.
the vitality of fear which felt like reverence,
to bury my father, who snoozed, in a dolmen of wet sand.
