The Metropolis Of Glass
Written over the past four years it is a distillation of the careful and thoughtful observations of the world around her by Chloe Lee.
The poems cover a wide range of topics from relationships blighted by cheating, divorce, war, the rising tide of social media, armed conflicts, the plight of the homeless, poverty and loneliness.
The observations are sharp and the with that changes them from the base material into the finished work of poetic art are even sharper still.
Chloe Lee is, obviously, a person watcher and she has used this skill to very good effect as her poems bring to mind the realities of life.
Of particular note are Remembrance Day, The Two Old Ladies, Dick Whittington and Richard Whittington and In the Margins.
Chloe Lee is a new name to me. It is to be hoped this is merely the start of a new star in the poetical heavens.
The Metrpolosis of Glass is published by The Book Guild at £7.99 and will make an excellent Christmas gift for the poetry fan in your life.
