Peasant Tower

ByTim Allen

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Peasant Tower is a book-length poem by the UK poet Tim Allen. Riding along on the top deck, its 275 couplets have a range of sound like this: // film director stands out in swarm of snappers / litter on radar skittles behind vehicle // skis clutter up left luggage / get your tongue around the yawn of an afternoon prayer // bums and faces but no overheads / stories in which young men's wallets are cuckoo clocks // incinerator in church cellar / a bird with eleven feet gets accepted by the establishment // messing around with an extraction fan / emasculated by a dowsing stick // subeditor crosses out coincidences in crossword / e.g. bus shelter in cathedral crypt // gull on its tod on refuse tip reads scorched love letter / vintage carnival route empty of the peanut // she stands back-to-front before a lost child / motorcycle sidecar carrying a demolished block of flats //
