Anthony Banks: The Four Vowels of Wind

PV 16 Jun 2022, 6-8pm


Hearing again the four vowels of the wind

Hearing again the talking house
and the four vowels of the wind,
and midnight monsters whispering
In the white throat of my room.

[…] Each old and echo-salted tongue
sings to my backward glance,
but the voice of the boy, the boy I seek,
within my mouth is dumb.

Laurie Lee, The Abandoned Shade
