New poem in Northwords Now

My poem 'Broadside' (AKA The Anarcho-Oneiric-Quietist Manifesto) is published in the new issue (no.31) of Northwords Now.

The brotherhood have asked me to point out that their call to arms respectfully borrows lines and phrases from The Beatles’ ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, David Rudkin’s Penda’s Fen (out on DVD next month!), Bob Dylan's 'When I Paint My Masterpiece', John Burnside's Gift Songs (his best collection?), and Paul Éluard, by way of Chase Twichell.

What is anarcho-oneiric quietism? I hear the man on the Clapham omnibus ask. Well, read the poem and find out.
