Cornershop Cowgirl

Cornershop Cowgirl

Alison Carr

Alison Carr's unusual collection links the culture of the USA's wild west with the post-industrial blight of the contemporary North East of England, especially Teesside.

This unique amalgam of cultural and social references produces a diverse mix of poetry from a distinctive new voice.

Reach for the Sky

Blood stone canyon
Red sand
Reflecting hot the sun
The sliver of snake skin in the dust, Survival.

Even the Charity shops have shut.
