Two Poems

in the swansongs of magazines -

'Mothering' in the14th issue of Mike Loveday's 14

and 'Like a Native' in the 50th issue of Michael Laskey and Joanna Cutts' Smiths Knoll

14 was great because of its simple idea - any poems of 14 lines considered - Smiths Knoll for its no-nonsense attitude to poetry (no contributors notes) and the crisp twenty next to your poem in the complimentary copy. Both will be missed!

Incidentally, the Poetry Library has archived some early versions of poems first published in 14 magazine.

The Ballad of Soo and Sweep

Over There
