To Those Born
Later, Leo Zeilig,
128 pp, ISBN 0-9538098-6-2
Joe Stein was my mother's lover seventy-two years ago.
They were lovers for four and a half months. My father had just returned
home. He had been away for two years. When he returned I didn't
recognise him. I remember that he cried and lifted me above his head as
though I had just been won. It was the year that today we regard as our
beginning. When the old ways faded or whatever they say about it now.
I've forgotten. I've lost track a little of our history. In the years
before these events Joe was a practising revolutionary and Sarah was
bringing me up. Then Joe unravelled. In the summer day of the revolt
that gave birth to us Joe unravelled.
To Those Born Later was

A force unstoppable
poetry by Dave Renton, 28pp, ISBN 0-9538098-7-0, £3
To make things better collectively
A green hat with red and orange stars
Author, organiser, lover
Friend. I see you equally
Firm against tear gas in Genoa
The smell of lemons on your scarf
And drunk in Hackney. Strip, you urged
The cold so fierce that my gloved hands burned
Strip, you said - winter - we'll strip and swim.
A force unstoppable bold was
published by Hegemon Press in December 2003.
