On Cheese

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Tuesday, 2 January 2007

Just popped over to the Poetry Archive this morning, and came across this comically ominous quotation by G K Chesterton:
Poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.
It reminded me of a poem I wrote a while back, which appeared in the July issue of The Red Wheelbarrow (an excellent magazine of poetry and opinion published out of the English dept. of the University of St Andrews), so I thought I'd reproduce it here. I hope, at least, it goes someway towards readressing this terrible imbalance.


It was here, but now it's disappeared.
