Day-blink
My Three Words online gallery, an IOU project commissioned by Junction, Goole
Day-blink was written as a poetry commission for My Three Words; a project inspired by locations in Goole, as they are described on the What Three Words app. Jo's poem was instigated by the three words: blink.hometown.opens, which is located at the entrance to Goole train station.
