Issue 20 – more readings

It’s a shaky world out there, as if someone had chopped off the table leg and left the few of us still talking sense to run to the far corner, use our weight to stop it toppling. So have some more poems to listen to, as a sign that people are still sitting down, concentrating, forming careful words, spreading some sort of order.

The right words in the right order…

a2… more of them, from issue 15. I’ve finally got a grip on the new issue, so not long now. Here’s a bumper selection of readings – it’s taken Antiphon a while, but I think it adds a whole new dimension to the magazine to be able to let you hear the poets reading their work.  How about some videos? Of readings or of something arty with a reading over the top. Anyone want to take up the challenge?

Rose Cook – A Situation Arising from a Complete Inability to Master Any Language But Her Own

Marilyn Francis – Interlude

Chris Burke – Blind Willie Johnson in Space

Janet Buck – Barking up the Sickly Tree

Ben Johnson – Operation
