Out For Air - Olly Todd

Olly Todd's first full collection of Poetry, published and beautifully presented by London's Penned in the Margins.

33 new poems that, I have to be honest, I don't feel qualified to write a thorough description of, but even for a heathen such as me there is so much to be enjoyed within these pages, it's absolutely bloody great. With that being said, I'll leave it to someone that does from Penned in the Margins.

"Infused with movement, surprise and play, Out for Air presents a unique vision of the built environment, celebrating places where ‘the bridges are endless / beyond the cantilever / of reality’. Each poem is its own event: expansive in scope but intricate in form, a masterclass in precision engineering.

Todd rewires T. S. Eliot’s Waste Land in his strange, compelling descriptions of the modern city: melting asphalt; a U-turning taxi; a diner swallowed by a sinkhole. In this disorientating landscape the skateboarder-poet is genius loci, the spirit of the place. From Manhattan’s ‘silky streets’ and the Pacific Coast Highway to inner-city London and his native Cumbria, together these poems record a life lived on the move, in motion, on the cusp of things".
