Title: Clive - new poem (TLS)
Post by Tiny_Montgomery on Today at 18:54
Clive James has a new poem - a sonnet - in the latest issue of the TLS. It's called 'On a Thin Gold Chain' and it's one of his best:

"                                ... What a long, long game
We've played. Quick now, before somebody dies:
Have you still got that pendant? Can I see?
And have you kept it dark to punish me?"
