Apples With Human Skin

Author: Nathan Shepherdson

you fell asleep with an
ember in your mouth
dreamt you were playing a
stone trumpet
a strange lament to
accompany a cold ritual
smashed souls with bullet
holes threaded with wire
strung up between this day
and the next

From the compact energies of minimalism through to dramatic larger sequences, Apples with Human Skin re-imagines the possibilities of poetry.

This new work by award-winning poet Nathan Shepherdson travels through visionary histories and wildly original spaces of philosophical enchantment and emotional resonance. Engaging with other artists from Austrian poet Georg Trakl to visual artists Lawrie Daws and Lucas Cranach the Elder, there is a vital sense of poetry in dialogue with the world.
