In This House, My Ghetto Mike Jenkins makes room for eccentric petrol pump attendants, beleaguered immigrants, odd lodgers, famous footballers and ghosts. This is not the Wales of postcards, but a very different post-modern, post-industrial landscape subject to the whims of petty bureaucrats lampooned in poems like 'Talking Shop', 'Anti-resort' and 'Psychodahlia' (a metal bloom that skewers a local councillor on the way to a spaghetti). Jenkins doesn't flinch from the bleak streets of 'Gurnos Shops' where the local 'takes his beer gut for a walk', and even a mountain has its say about pesky tourists in 'Yr Wyddfa Speaks Out', yet this continual humour and energy belie the outrage and there are plenty of poems that, in contrast, praise and celebrate. In 'Blackberrying' and the long love poem 'A Strange Recognition' there is still room for the surprises of beauty and romance.
