Points of Departure

By Rodney Wood

Rodney Wood worked in London and Guildford. His poems have appeared recently in The High Window, Orbis, Magma (where he was Selected Poet in the deaf issue) and Envoi. His debut pamphlet, Dante Called You Beatrice, appeared in 2017. He is joint MC of the monthly open mic nights at The Lightbox and is also the Stanza Rep for Woking; both now take place on Zoom.

POINTS OF DEPARTURE: The Getty Museum encouraged us to recreate works of art with objects found at home. I saw these marble sculptures of a bin bag and thought I’d have a go, and become part of that community. But what I made really did turn out to be rubbish though.
