Changing Carriages at Birmingham New Street
Changing carriages at Birmingham New Street unless plans change over the next few months will be my final full-length book of poetry which will be out over autumn or winter 2023.
Began in 2017 during the creation of my third book “The Birth of Autumn” which then life on its own afterwards, its contents will tell you the story through a series of memories told by an unnamed narrator of firstly of a friendship he had growing up with a girl called Sarah who came back into his life after over a twenty-year gap with the pair of them in deeply unhappy marriages changing everything forever.
Inspired by the clarify in Hugo Williams's book dock leaves and the expressive nature of Paul Auster’s poetry, this book will take the reader on a series of journeys up and down the northwest of England and beyond using their adventures in towns and cities to show how everything changes often without realising.
The first poem from the book can be seen exclusively on my substack page https://andyn.substack.com/p/changing-carriages-at-birmingham
