and Campanula Books
Mica – a glittering fireproof mineral, hand-picked crumbs of poetic matter.
A books launch and reading was held at The Poetry Society's Poetry Café 16 October 2017
Julian Flanagan's 2017 readings from this book (on YouTube video).
On the parade to diagnosis,
turning through hooped scanners
and narrowing possibilities,

that it was blood in the bowl
because if, after all the fuss,
it was only the beetroot I’d been eating,
the embarrassment could kill me.
