DAY THIRTY-ONE – Harry Smart

The terror, that’s what I love about this.
Scaring the shit out of thousands
by simply leaking some brutal idea, for cutting
…let’s stop there, at cutting, at the thought of cutting

as Galileo was simply shown the instruments.
And knowing we would do it
in a heartbeat, in one strong heartbeat,
there, we will cut.




Harry Smart is originally from Leeds and now lives in Montrose. He has published poetry, fiction and social theory.  He is currently working on Violence in the Heart, which is an essay on the theology of violence.
