on - a model of a process

curves
model curves
life form proceeds
shaped
like songs
green and hungry
caught
in congress
with the process
there's
a long

for the fire

learn by
looking into this
white
and green
curled like comment
there
are ways

save salt now

As many of you will know, poetry publisher, Salt, is feeling the effects of the economic downturn (or GFC if you prefer). Their three year funding from the English Arts Council ends this year. Spring sales were down nearly 80% on the previous year, and despite April's much improved trading, the past twelve months has left a budget deficit of over £55,000. So, Chris and Jen Hamilton-Emery are asking for some help - a small ask to save this important international poetry list.

JUST ONE BOOK

1. Please buy just one Salt book, right now. They don't mind from where, you can buy it from Salt or from Amazon, your local shop or megastore, online or offline. If you buy just one book now, you'll help to save Salt. Timing is absolutely everything here. They need cash now to stay afloat. You could go to their online store and help keep them going, or buy from your favourite online or real world bookshop.
