Poetry winner from Memoir (and)

I discovered this wonderful poem in a pub called Memoir (and). The poem is “Flannel,” it’s written by Charles Rutter and it made me cry on the first reading of it. Lovely.

    Amazing! I’m happy that Charles has the ability to express himself so deeply. It has to be healing.

    That is a beautiful poem, indeed. Poetry mags are like a group of fickled girls, some want you to slide through the story like a dream and others want you only to infer the image. I prefer poems written in the style as the one you chose to share from Memoir (and). They are smooth and romantic.

      Right! I love this type of poetry, it pulls into the moment and tells you something that you know you feel, but can’t put your own words to. It’s not so obtuse I have no idea what it’s saying and it’s poetic enough to allow me to draw my own emotions from it.
