The Tangerine / by Matthew Haigh

I'm very pleased to have a poem feature in thew new issue of The Tangerine magazine! The poem is called Dementia as Computer Game Glitch. It uses the framing device of glitching in video games - ie when a game freezes or temporarily breaks or otherwise performs some unscripted, unintended quirk - as a way of conveying the gradual erosion of memory and function associated with dementia. Dementia is something that has affected a family member of mine in the past, and a topic that I read about daily in my day job with the NHS. Issue three of the magazine is the autumn 2017 issue, and it's available direct from The Tangerine website.
