The Coast Will Wait Behind You

       
            Release your anchor.
Feel the pinch and tug
            as it settles into seabed.

            Where are you?

This is Sandhaven Beach

            circa infinity.

Don’t lose reach. All memory is
             
            white noise

to the  galloping surge
           
            of people and tide...


Over the past year, I have collaborated with visual artists working across a number of disciplines to write a new poem-sequence exploring landscape, memory, history and identity between Herd Groyne Lighthouse and Lizard Point in South Shields.

This project is now being launched at The Customs House in South Shields and will run until the end of August featuring individual and collaborative works from all of the artits involved.

This article also explains the project in more depth.
