Tuesday Poem: “Vocal” by Bill Nelson

“Vocal” appears in the latest issue of the 4th Floor Literary Journal, a selection of work written each year by students and tutors on the writing programme at Whitireia New Zealand. Bill is a stellar poet, and someone to watch out for in New Zealand poetry. He’s part of my writers group, so I’ve had the pleasure of seeing earlier versions of this poem. Reading it reminds me that writing truly is rewriting. I haven’t reproduced the poem here because my blog suffers hiccups with long lines. It also gives you the chance to read other parts of the journal (…Helen Heath, James Brown, Mary Cresswell, and more).
