News at Eleven: A & E deals with the aftermath in gothic detail:

as the nurse waves him away, "I parted the tweed to show her/what I had going on underneath./Unfashionable, but striking nonetheless:/my chest undone like some rare waistcoat,/with that lace-up front--a black échelle--/its red, wet look leatherette,/those fancy, flapping lapels".

The collection is structured around four versions from Ovid, describing the dwellings of the personifications of Famine, Envy, Sleep and Rumour, and four from Nonnus.
