On-line poetry journal, "Ground", to publish "Centurion"


"Ground", will publish my poem, Centurion, on 18th September. Written as a response to T S Eliot's poem, Journey of the Magi, which uses the nativity as a narrative for a birth and a death, Centurion uses the crucifixion to explore a death and birth. It was conceived and written as a counterpart to Journey of the Magi and was a prizewinning poem in the 2011 Grist Poetry Competition.
