The saw-tooth profile of the East Soar headland conjures up a birder’s sonogram, a picture of sound where the frequencies are split into scribbly layers, the darkest of
which — the fundamental — records the note we hear (or we think we hear) while, almost inaudibly, the voice is splitting at vertical intervals into harmonics. Just as schist means ‘to split’, these are poems for two voices, both of them yours, written to be read aloud to yourself, a slow sing-a-long accompaniment for being outdoors.
