Abstract

Radical landscape and city poetry collection. Losing Boundaries maps place and journeys. Connections and disruptions are pinpointed in and between Manchester, North Wales, Derwentside and Newcastle upon Tyne. Sequences and poems within sequences zigzag between now and the past, from old maps of the Irk Valley to a storm torn town after a sleepless night, to a new territory of undulating fells and arching metal bridges. I am writing from England, the place where I lay my head at night and dream of home - Wales.
