          Tom Raworth feature

      Miles Champion: poem

stuffed chair
      yellow foam
picks out the static

of names
the small gleam
     matte dust
     there is lustre

in the lion’s mouth
  where slogans
are taped
flowers set

                  to dry
all streaming
    shadow juice
jiggle and twist

         brain on a
           dumb colours
won’t turn in mud

        a blue sky
in the arm
    the brighter black
of the image stamp

                    for Tom, Val & Cato
