The Midnight Heart

New writing on Junction Box

Today, the new issue of Lyndon Davies’s Junction Box has gone live. The idea of the zine is to create a space mainly for poets “to talk about the world, themselves and the others, in a free and category-open fashion”. Davies writes:

Junction Box will be mainly prose-based. The idea is a determinedly simple one: to invite carefully chosen poets, writers and artists to write about whatever they want to write about. The subject matter is entirely open: it may be personal, political, literary, artistic, cosmological, or indeterminate or decisively subject-free: there are no boundaries. It’s a space, hopefully, where practitioners will feel licenced to explore any aspect of their experiences as human beings, from any angle available to them.

This issue features a piece that I have written about Arches National Park in Utah. I visited the Delicate Arch in 2010, when I was driving from Pennsylvania to California. Somehow the arch itself became bound up, for me, with the grieving process and coming to terms with loss. You can see ‘Arches’ here.
