100 Word Review: Perrenial by Ben Armstrong

Review: Perrenial

Publisher: Knives Forks and Spoons Press

Author: Ben Armstrong

Price: £11.00

Ben’s skilled and confident use of the page to sculpt his poems leaves the reader wondering what could possibly come next and makes for a collection stuffed with poetical gems. The unpredictability of the collection demands the reader’s whole attention in return for an experience that seems eclectic but has many layers to dig through, giving the reader a spectrum of experiences that thread together beautifully.


My favourite lines, from ‘Homer’s Ring’


it would not be long before I wished fins from out my shoulders
gained the taste for krill
and prayed for a metamorphosis that made spout my fontanelle.
