Sonnet 8: Limehouse Cut

DPS blur 08 Limehouse Cut

“I fling myself at exits, breezeblock walls, / I haunt abandoned lots, urinal stalls”

• Tamar Yoseloff on Limehouse Cut: “The character in this poem could be in dialogue with the guy in Quickie Heel Bar. This image (so ordered in its divisions of council block, fence, branch) inspired one of the most formal sonnets of the sequence but also one of  the most irreverent. This is a place designed for rebellion, in its rigidity and unrelenting misery.”
