||Edwin Drood's Column
||12 April 2016
|As Drood's long tea break appears to be turning into a sabbatical,|
we continue with another poem by Hugh Featherstone.
In the torn half
of a photograph
a flea market memo
from long before
Curled like an embryo
in the womb of history
'mid the late summer heat
of the last just war
Lies an American
cradling a jerry can
asleep in a jeep
in France, in '44
From Bird under water, a selection of poems by Hugh Featherstone

Poems from this selection appear when the Drood's away.
