Here’s one of Lloyd’s poem:
this sticky heat
cornhead primed, the wheatsheaf tide laps cliffhigh
in milky wet sunshine at the edge of field.
laid under bramble hedge, i roll pert blackberries between my teeth
project with my tongue & pop between your waiting lips.
over walnutwood eyes you drop your lids
loll fruit flesh & squeeze for release, suck juice, swallow pips.
we kiss, join & rejoice in the field off the gulling sea, reverberate the low breeze
the pumping thud of human blood, quiverheavy with salt & seed.
our sweated sighs entwine with the bush branch & leaf, the final flicked wingbeats
of blacksaffron bees prone on the sandy mud, each bleached with this sticky heat.
