Putting the Boat to Bed

Putting the Boat to Bed

by Deirdre Foster

Coming from IRON Press in July, Putting the Boat to Bed by Deirdre Foster:

These deceptively simple poems, behind a suburban normality often disguise dark and disturbing worlds - one house is a drugs den, another has housed a recent murder. Elsewhere, the poems evoke the recent West Country floods. In Somerset Winters:

Mallard ducks
Swimming in fields
Looking for their rivers.

Other poems evoke the experience of having a seizure or the tedium of commuting.

The work is illustrated by the striking black and white line drawings of the poet's daughter, Nikki.
