‘light’ is a poem-card intended for display. A single word is debossed onto black card – literally made of light. When there is no light to catch it, the word vanishes. It is revealed only from angles around the room when light, pooling briefly in the furrows of the word’s impression, speaks. As a new work by the author of the controversial poem ‘lighght’ (1965), ‘light’ (2016) is also a gentle nod, a witty return, a final condensation.
