Postcards from Malthusia DAY SIXTY-NINE: Jayne Stanton

Aubade Without End

 

Open a window; whistle

in the key of birdsong.

 

Stick your prayer flags

in the tumble drier.

 

Hear the kettle bubble

with laughter.

 

Bid the clock

keep its hands to itself.

 

 

Jayne Stanton’s poems have appeared in print and online, including the anthology Best British & Irish Poets 2017. She has written commissions for a county museum, University of Leicester’s Centre for New Writing, UoL poems for International Women’s Day 2018, and a city residency. A pamphlet, Beyond the Tune, is published by Soundswrite Press (2014).
