Suburban Outpost Burning by James Appleyard
A new pamphlet from London-based poet and writer James Appleyard. His work has appeared in numerous publications including Aesthetica Magazine and has been anthologised by Medusa's Laugh Press.
Suburban Outpost Burning is simultaneously a mediation on loss and a celebration of life. These poems peel away the emotional resonances of grief to reveal its surprisingly life affirming essence. This collection also contains 'Protection Spells', a series of pieces that see James Appleyard explore the tumultuous journey of parenthood with surprising and luminous tenderness
