Up in the Air – Poems on Video: Suburban Alembic

Here’s the latest in my series of Poems on Video from my collection Up in the Air.

An alembic is a distilling tool that combines different elements to create something new. It’s used in philosophy for a process of refinement, or transmutation. This poem, written about a summer evening in my grandmother’s garden in Eastbourne, is my first video request. Let me know if there’s a poem from Up in the Air that you’d like me to read on video.

And of course this poem is dedicated to my grandma, Pamela Isobel Lilian Korn.
