Luke Allan – Quait

Quait is a journal of concrete & formal poetry. Each issue is dedicated to a specific poetic form, and issue one features 15 'dicotyledons' by a number of poets. A dicotyledon typically comprises two words that differ by one letter. For instance 'previous' & 'precious'. The name comes from botany, meaning a seed that contains two embryonic leaves.
