Meet the Philpotts, a perfectly ordinary couple whose ordinary lives are transformed into a series of small miracles in the course of this beautifully crafted sequence from poet and critic Helena Nelson.



Philpott feels something like despair
but drier and quieter.
He wants to stop counting.
He wants to enfold his lovely wife
and listen to life whispering in her thighs
and give up everything, save only this.

Mrs Philpott threads a camel
through the eye of her needle.
