A Poem by Bombazine : 'ON THE ICE THAT CRACKLES IN VEIN'

Delighted to see that the American title of my book has inspired someone to write a poem!

I particularly like the 'a confederacy of fingers gloving soft the ridges' and the ending - a strong simple command just to 'listen'.

Thank you Bombazine.

Unfortunately, the intro says 'Saw a book called "one day the ice will reveal all its dead", went with it' not 'Bought a book called "one day the ice will reveal all its dead", went with it.'

Thanks Adrian...Yeah, I noticed that - ah well, at least the title inspired and it is a good poem...I take my scraps of encouragement where I can.
