4 Fancy a trip to Ysp? It’s a bit like Luxembourg, but with more brutalist architecture, armed police and avant-garde art. Simon Armitage has spent the past year there, and Flit is his travelogue in the form of 40 poems, with photos of local landmarks. “Like any city/ with a history worth knowing”, he writes, “the capital boasts/ gunshot holes plugged with chewing gum/ at chest-height on the cathedral walls.” He’s even translated a few verses from Ysp’s finest poet, a shadowy figure called H K: "Beyond the funeral procession the hot-air balloon bears fruit.
