Michael Symmons Roberts tweet poetry

Thinking about maps and skin and why we remember poems...and I remembered this one.

If you are not familiar with British poet Michael Symmons Roberts' poetry, Corpus published in 2004 by Cape Poetry is a good place to start. It won the Whitbread Poetry Award amongst others that year.

This is tweet is from his poem Pelt, a poem appealing to taxidermists and others. MSR has been described as "religious poet for a secular age".
