Poem and video: Walkback Limit

Walkback Limit is a poem set in December 1972. While the crew of Apollo 17 – the last people to walk on the moon – are preparing to return to Earth, the residents of a small English village hold a lamplit vigil to mark the departure of the last train from their railway station before its closure.

This poem appears in my collection The Meanwhile Sites (Salt Publishing, 2022).
