A poem of my own this Tuesday, from my creative doctoral project. On the 18 October I will be editing the main Tuesday Poem blog and will feature a segment from Anne Kennedy’s book length narrative poem, ‘The Time of The Giants’. Last week a friend asked, What makes a poem a poem compared to a story? Much of my recent work plays around in the space between poetry and prose (and lyric and narrative) as I try to answer that question. To accompany Kennedy’s work I will attempt to post lyrical or poetic prose during October as a way to poke at the boundaries of the two forms.
