Three poems

TCM71_CoverThree poems by Frank McMahon are published this month. “Flint’ and ‘Passajes’ appear in the June edition of ‘The Cannon’s Mouth’, the quarterly journal of the Birmingham-based Cannon Poets.

The third poem ‘It is the Sound’ has been published by ‘I am not a silent poet’, the
online magazine for poetry and artwork protesting against abuse in any of its forms. It begins:

IT IS THE SOUND
of a child abandoned on a hillside
of a man’s tears falling across a rock
of a seabird caught in a trough of oil
of a whale lost amongst the throb of engines
of a mother pleading for the life of her child.

Frank said: “Sometimes the news about the suffering and injustice in the world
becomes overwhelming and the voices of pain and despair break through,
compelling me to respond with poetry.”
