Metallurgy by Peter Donnelly

Metallurgy, chemistry, magic: the

Compounding a very space of myself.


Up from the stone-cold depths of the Neolithic:

Wedge tombs capped off that age,

The sun setting on distance between sun and stone.



Peter Donnelly’s first collection, Photons, was published by Appello Press in 2014. Following its publication, playwright Frank McGuinness commented that "Peter Donnelly already shows he has a strong imagination; indeed, a savage one presents itself on occasion when the beautiful and brutal confront and confound each other." You can listen to him read here.
