Poetry. The world of PERMANENT STATE is one that welcomes anxiety and affection, rage and bewilderment. It encompasses the quotidian and the philosophical, disbelief and the nature of knowledge, history and politics, consumerism and infirmity, social conventions and the environment. Rather than isolate concerns, PERMANENT STATE invites many.
