These two visual poems by James Knight are part of a wider series, titled Monster. These, named ‘Using Waste Bodies’ and ‘The Sea as a Metaphor for Death’, interrogate notions of the monstrous, as Knight explains. They “mix gothic tropes with cut-up-text from Karl Marx, Bram Stoker, social media and some of my own poetry.”
