John James

Sad to hear that John James has died. One of the writers whose work I go back to again and again. I met him when he came to do a reading at Edge Hill University in 2005. Such a nice bloke, and a remarkable poet.

‘I reach toward the poetry of kindred
where we speak in a work as we seldom do otherwise’

from: ‘Poem Beginning With a Line by Andrew Crozier’ in Cloud Breaking Sun (Oystercatcher Press, 2012).
