from The Poetics of Labour

The government line puts a triple stress

on let’s be honest, their mandate,

and new labour. Poetics: my words

have ancient powers. Public

service hotline. Learning to write

the third way, and this from a newspaper

yellowing between the eyes and time.


A minister in the battle of values

makes the white paper charge –

attacks to the left of you, attacks

to the anti-modern (he’s called

a control freak). Poetics: free

to choose to work with us,

or, a big or, to hold up your stake.
