Appearances in the Bentinck Hotel free pdf Shortlisted for the EDP-Jarrold East Anglian Book Awards Reading these poems there is a sense that, through 'the sneakiness of words', their tantalising truths are continuing partly to elude us - when 'no' touches 'yes', a dream solidifies on waking, coffee dregs yield one's reflection, or the song you didn't think to remember renews its hold on you. Their highly-tuned awareness comes not out of introspection, but attentiveness, and also a real affection for the 'cheerful stabs of flair among the serious junk' of the world. Dry ice, microwaves, lager-tops: all have their limelight in the mind, but there is nothing glib or cheaply-won about how the temporary or everyday become the emblem of a thought. Cockburn's poems realise this time and again, with the sureness of an Anglepoise lamp that 'throws its one enquiry' into moments that, though private, are also the ones we most meaningfully share.
