Reading “More Than Time”

More Than Time by Patric Dickinson is a very mixed collection of poems, from quite intense to seemingly flippant. There is also a wide and bizarre mixture of styles that don’t really pull together very well.

My favourite poems were St. Catherine’s Point, Fantasy in White and Sputnik.

Watching the sweating brass,
Mortal as me, I still
Hear them and see them blowing
– Orchestra

It feels too safe and a little poorly curated although some of the ideas and insights are definitely worth reading and thinking about.
