Poems: Missing God (Dennis O’Driscoll), Sweetbread (Robert Wrigley)

The Saturday poem in the Guardian Review is one of those little weekly happy nuggets in the family-size bucket of happy that is the Saturday papers. I kept the page with Missing God (Dennis O’Driscoll), from December. It did occur to me that it could be found online, but there’s something about the dog-eared, raggedy-edged pages of newsprint that I’ve built up over my few years here that’s more appealing than liquid crystal displays.

Elsewhere in poetry, Sweetbread (Robert Wrigley) is most definitely the loveliest poem about offal I have ever read.
