A Tribute to Simon Howard

This is an extract from Of Dubious Suction (Black Square Notes), a sequence for Simon Howard, which appears in the fine tribute to him that Richard Barrett and Sarah Crewe have put together over at litter magazine. Like many others- see Richard’s tribute here – I did not meet Simon, but hugely enjoyed his poetry – particularly the wonderful e-book Jubilee – and was massively grateful for his support and enthusiasm as editor (with Richard Barrett) of department magazine and press.
I hope he would have enjoyed this poem, and the splendid work in the whole issue. Simon’s chapbook forgotten has been posthumously published by Red Ceilings Press, who also put out the ebook numbers back in 2010.
