Today's poem is "Christ of the Deep"
from Wowsers
Seren Books

Paul Groves is English by nature and Welsh by nurture. He is a critic, creative writing lecturer, and tutor with the Open College of the Arts. He has read on radio and television, at schools and universities, and has judged national [UK] poetry competitions.

About Wowsers:

"Groves can be compelling and funny, underscoring conventional full-rhyming stanzas with a deadpan diction. His treatment of sexuality overrides the mores of gender politics."
—Conor O'Callaghan, Times Literary Supplement

"A detached observer, cool and ironic and sophisticated in his use of language. His technical skills are dazzling, and and his wit dark and delicately delivered."
—Catherine Fisher, New Welsh Review
