|J F HAINES: OVERDRAWN AT THE MEMORY BANK|
This is a leaflet formed from a single A4 sheet folded into three. It features J F Haines. He is a former folk musician and local government officer. He is also editor of Handshake, a poetry newsletter. This contains little snippets or tasters that centre onother worlds'. Most of the pieces have been previously published. The leaflet is light hearted and quirky, and I leave you with a couple of examples:
Interglacial If you missed the last Ice Age, Don't worry — Another one will be along In ten thousand years. After The Insurrection Ghosts of planets we burned still come and haunt Our sleepless nights, expose our sham defence: The dead confront us with their innocence, Jerk us wide-eyed from nightmare, pale-grey and gaunt.
