Short Afternoons -- a poem by Kit Wright

Times Literary Supplement link to the poem


  1. Okay...when I have to pull out the Webster three times in the first five lines...I stop reading. It just isn't fun. Poor reflection on me I suppose, but life is hard enough.

  2. Those words were also unfamiliar to me. Maybe they are common British terms? I don't know. When I read this poem, I sort of let the context provide at least a vague understanding of those words. I skipped across their surface like a flat stone. :)
