Eight pieces in imitation of Thomas A. Clark

Matthew Welton

‘what it is about the earth / that it won’t absorb the stream’

an infinite future
of hatchlings, buds, saplings –
the footpaths, mulch, pebbles
of the infinite past


Matthew Welton

Matthew Weltons third collection, The Number Poems will be published by Carcanet in 2016. He teaches creative writing at the University of Nottingham.
