Poetry. PELT contains poems 'Pelt' and 'B. Splinter'. 'Pelt' is a two book work comprising 'The Two Brothers' and "Shore Body.' The first book is a splay of past written in an accumulatory mode. The paired book 'Shore Body' deals with the same location and personage, but develops it through the onset of teenagehood. It includes a 5 book work rooted in North Devon. 'B Splinter' is an odyssey of wartime '40s Europe: a driver with a bee on the windshield for company.
