Today I am pleased to host another poem from the Poetry ID anthology, A Sackful of Clouds. This one is by Dennis Tomlinson, and was first published in Acumen 101 (September 2021).


Tower after tower in humid morning.
Traffic thunders amidst chattering drills.

The Raffles Hotel you knew of old
rebuilt, grown big beyond disappointment.

Stark cranes of Hyundai stand erect,
as if aiming at heaven’s heart.

Copies of A Sackful of Clouds are available from David Smith ( at £6 plus £1.50 P&P.
