In Chanteys for the Fisherangels four poets give voice to the inspiration found in Lal Waterson’s song “Midnight Feast” and in turn, inspire me. J.C. Runolfson gives us “The sky is the floor of an ocean”, followed by Sonya Taaffe’s “The Coast Guard”. Then comes in Francesca Forrest with “Invitation Refused” and finally, “Feather, Halo, Hook and Line” by Erik Amundsen. Their words are introduced by Greer Gilman, who writes as eloquently as ever of Lal and the feast. The poems are interspersed with four full colour photographs spread across the pages, images captured by Sonya Taaffe at the edge of the sea.
