TS Eliot Prize 2012 shortlist

The shortlist for this year's TS Eliot Prize has been announced - I suspect all the usual arguments will start, and I don't intend to get involved in them until I've read more of what's on the list. Good to see Deryn Rees-Jones on there, though (I have read her book, and very good it is too), and I've been meaning to get hold of that Julia Copus collection, so this will spur me into action.

Hi Matt,
Just came across Once and Future Kings - your poem on the Kumquat poetry website. Really amazing stuff! Lyrical and subtle with a really wonderful descriptive language. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it! -x-

Thank you, that's very kind of you - glad you liked it! I'm delighted to have had a couple of pieces on Kumquat, because they post such interesting stuff on there.
