 In Poems

Quadrant published two of Andrew’s poems—”The Pleasure” and “Dip” —in its April 2016 issue. “The Pleasure” is reprinted below:


The Pleasure

It is my pleasure,
the pleasure

I give to the chooks
as I toss the scraps

and watch the scrapes
and scraps erupt

between them as
with clucks and pecks

and quick scratchings
and wild flappings

they wolf down
without snivelling

the sops from our tea.
