Each poem in The Light User Scheme is a short, tight burst of narrative. They aim to capture what is going on around us, in full sight or glimpsed in periphery. What results is a subtly interwoven series of resonant images, oblique glances and condensed emotional intrigue, amid a knowing consideration of the poetry form.
