Life may be a helter skelter or it may be a space elevator. Or perhaps, it is just what you make of it. A number of years ago the author of this collection of contemporary poetry mooched stranded in a large town in Middle England confused and smouldering. Anchored to a small apartment deep in the old town on the side of a hill in the downtown of a fuzzy industrious but out of place chunk of British Urban Angst, he would look out of the large street-level window of his apartment and gaze at the spectral wonder of the life beyond. Outside that window fellow urbanauts would climb and descend the hill from hotspot to hotspot, arguments would be had, bottles would be smashed, kisses and gropes would be claimed, bins would be torched, windows would be broken, burgers and kebabs would be eaten, herons would nest in the nearby park, lakes of wine would slosh and buckets of spirit would sneer. Then in the surrounding downtown streets he would himself stagger and lurk and wonder and hope and seek The Numbness. The tales in this collection chart that time of dizzy torpor and discovery. Ben Brinkburn is a British writer and poet and this is one of three poetry collections currently available. In Kitchen Conversations, meet Molly Upstairs and The Barb, sink deep into a metropolitan miasma, save frogs from certain death on busy roads, drink on the stairs with money laundering Norwegians and analyse the world through a glass myopically with the customers of The Frustrated Monk.
