An exhilarating and powerful poetry pamphlet, that is as direct as it is accomplished.

Loose the smouldering arrow:
start the fire.

While the prey-birds circle,
drench my pyre with
precious oils and

let me
blaze once more.
(from Codicil)

Review quote

"Texture is remarkable for the way its apparently casual free verse allows powerful images and themes to spill over themselves across its line endings in its rueful and headlong confessions and reflections. Its directness is exhilarating." - Ian Gregson

About Sue Lewis

Sue Lewis is a London poet who has been published in The Fenland Reed, Blithe Spirit, Morley Magazine and Southbank Poetry. She was short listed in the Morley Arts Festival Poetry Competition in 2018 and Texture is her debut pamphlet.

She started writing poetry after recovering from a minor stroke fifteen years ago and is currently completing her MA in Creative Writing with the Open University. She has read her work at Poets Anonymous in Croydon and Words Aloud in Sutton; at local festivals and libraries and on Croydon Radio. She is a member of the British Haiku Society and of the Second Light network.

Her other passions are tai chi and music. She is learning (somewhat belatedly) to play the recorder. After looking after retired greyhounds for many years she has now gone over to the dark side and adopted a very annoying cat.
