Spoon of Honey – a small extract

An extract from the title poem of Ion Corcos’ pamphlet, A Spoon of Honey, published by Flutter Press.

 

Spoon of Honey

I thought coming to a barren mountain,
sheer cliffs full of shadow,
the lone eagle, dry cuts on the slopes,
I thought that I would find
the truth.
If I walked beside
stone walls, picked up fallen rocks
and looked beneath them,
that I would find my name.
A spoon of honey,
a corridor underground…

 

The pamphlet, A Spoon of Honey, is available to purchase here.

 

A Spoon of Honey – A short review

A short review on Ion Corcos’ pamphlet, A Spoon of Honey, by UK poet, Helen Mort.

‘The lyric, elegant poems in ‘A Spoon of Honey’ question what we’re really looking for when we set out seeking ‘the truth’. Ion Corcos’ quest yields subtleties: winter nests, trees hung with bitter oranges, night rain and wild sunflowers. It offers countless imaginative possibilities.’

  • Helen Mort, Poet
