Wild Court

I have a poem in the international poetry journal of King’s College London. It can be read here.

Wild Court is an international online poetry journal based in the English Department of King’s College London, and named for an alley opposite the Virginia Woolf Building, which houses the English Department. In the nineteenth century, Wild Court alley was an Irish slum, a ‘rookery’ where no policeman dared venture. A short distance away is the Fleet Street window where the Irish poet W.B. Yeats saw a fountain in a shop-window and was inspired to write his poem ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’. You never know where a glance in a London window will take you and Wild Court celebrates poetry’s reach and connectivity. Wild Court’s Advisory Board includes writers, editors and critics from the UK, India and the USA.’ My thanks to Wild Court’s editor, Robert Selby.
