For January's Poem of the Month, I have chosen the poem 'Survival of the Lucky' by Graham Buchan
It is taken from his collection Lucky.





SURVIVAL OF THE LUCKY 

Time, like a bulldozer, pushes history, like rubble, down the 
slope of regret and wonder, of inconsequence and chance. 
My parents’ wedding. 
The war. 
The epidemic. 

Take me to the howling plain, 
where my sharp bones refuse to sleep, 
where the hard earth refuses memory, 
where the brazen sky looks down 
in horror and bewilderment.
