Reading “Ask the Bloody Horse”

Ask the Bloody Horse by Dannie Abse was not a collection that I enjoyed, in fact I seem to always have trouble connecting to Abse’s writing. From this collection I did like AWOL and Friends. Overall I found the structure and style hard to read but the use of titles in relation to the poems they connect to was interesting. Throughout the messages seemed blunt and so a lot of the impact was lost for me.

Lonely, wishes another mirror
could be brought in, close by, opposite,
that it may reproduce itself.
