Not What You Think by Clark Gormley


Not What You Think is a collection of poems that uses wit and wordplay to explore the hidden stories of everyday life. Many of the poems delve into the domestic suburban surrounds of Clark’s home-town. Others offer a satirical take on nature and modern technology. From watching birds to venetian blinds and nonsense rhymes, Gormley’s poetry adds lustre to things we know so well that we often stop thinking about them.

But don’t believe the blurb. Here’s a link to a review:
