Dictionary Corner Found Poem – Dogfish

I wrote down everything Susie Dent said in the order she said it in dictionary corner on Oct 3rd’s #countdown, and it made a Found Poem with sparse, dramatic, religious imagery and bleak finality. Susie’s clearly working on a higher plane than the rest of us.


A sand coloured shark common to European coasts

From the Greek meaning sweet wine

Retrial is another seven

Gathered for eight

I’m seeing whether heritage has turned into heritaged

It’s such a modern verb


Then there is a seven that maybe familiar to regular viewers

Novenas – prayers said on nine successive days

Adaptors for eight

It’s such a horrible round

Deaths for six

Nothing beyond
