Just occasionally I read poem or two.

I read one a while ago and a phrase jumped out and became the title of this website.

‘Sucked Slant’

I hope the poet will not mind if I just tempt you with the opening lines.


When you come out of the sea, with its faint
illegible scrawl of scum like a smudged sleeve,
you hear the screak of pebbles sucked slant


George Szirtes

From his book 'REEL' published by Bloodaxe Books

Listen to the 'screak' when you get a chance.
