In poems and sequences written between 2003 and 2010 Peter Riley explores his terrain in extended meditations and monologues, collages of fragmented noticings and sudden bursts of song. Layering and counterpoint: the past surfaces- voices reverberae, picking up the themes. The mental traveller encounters pressures of history, culture and language, across time and place.
