This is the place

“Tony Walsh’s poem, ‘This is the place’, rapped out by him in fierce lines at Tuesday’s vigil in Manchester, did what public poetry should do – found words where there are no words. We say, ‘I don’t know what to say.’ We say we’re lost for words. Words have lost us. The poem gives us back the words we need.” (Jeanette Winterson in The Guardian, 25 May 2017)
