Pantoumby Patrick Stack
The Pantoum is a Malayan verse form, a variation of which is used in this poem. It was written in and around 2006 just before the last big recession and explores the destruction wrought upon our cultural and historic landscape in pursuit of profit and driven by greed.
This recording was made by the poet at this home on 02 May 2020. The poem was published in his first poetry collection, The Parting (Amethyst Dragon, 2013).
