Before I set off Elsewhere

Before I set off Elsewhere signifies that the holiday in Kos is over; a couple of poems linger & the title eludes to a connection with the Poetry Otherwise course soon to be on at at Emerson College in Sussex. One third or so through the twenty two poems a footnote to Carpets of Thorns and Lillies talks of closure and new beginnings, this, a later reflection, questions the bravado of such statements but blesses them nonetheless.
