About the poet
Tim Liardet was born in London in 1959 and educated at the University of York and characterises...
Like Slant Rain
when the only other person in the world who speaks it dies
have them make sense, say they are the wrong way round.
lately, I confess, I’ve tried scrawling to myself in the glass
Like slant rain it quickens suddenly and slows down
Like slant rain it goes on falling and tearing, falling and tearing
