Bent for the Job
This selection of 'new poems' is partly sourced from an extensive archive found hidden in the poet's former abode. Within these pages: alcohol, melancholia, Get Carter, menstrual blood, loneliness, unsatisfying sexual encounters, fading personal relationships, passionate trysts, emotional breakdowns and so on. Perseverance by the reader will, however, be rewarded with glimpses of humour, goodwill and even compassion. But always with Mr Guffan's barely concealed complicity to be 'bent for the job'.
