Flight among the tombs : poems

Summary: The poetry of death. In Death of the Oxford Don, he writes: "Acquiring over years the appetite / And feeding habits of a parasite, / I live off the cold corpus of fine print, / Habited with black robes and heart of flint, / The word made flesh for me and me alone. / I gnaw and gnaw the satisfactory bone." With wood engravings by Leonard Baskin.
