"But the evening was only a 'debate' in the same way that Have I Got News for You is a 'quiz' or keepie-uppie is 'football'.."

impossible music 

Priest podcast.

    "Ghazal of the Impossible Music

Sound admitted through doors of tomorrow alone
one day it's said truth itself will appear alone

plainly dressed in colour that cannot be buried
appearing like day does over not one land alone

a mandolin and an oud make love
it is not necessary to be alone

impossible music, new poetry
not just for you or me alone

like lungs a tide breathed in out
in time something grew true alone

planet turn us back into ourselves
rotating us out of the unreal alone"

--Adam Reynolds in the new Ghazal Page (soon* to be defunct)

*"After eighteen issues and a year and a half of dealing with Squarespace, on top of the 1990-grade speed of Hughes Internet, I have arrived at the point where I do not expect to be able to keep up with the Ghazal Page unless it can be removed from Squarespace to a more functional host. Unfortunately I do not have time to manually move the thousands of pages, nor the expertise to automate the process before the current hosting period expires (at the end of March). Unless some volunteer appears to help migrate the site, the Ghazal Page may cease publication and in any case the existing archives will not be salvaged.

There will be at least one more issue of the Ghazal Page; any poems which have already been accepted will be published."
