Foivos Dousos, ‘Following your steps’

20th May 2020

This week we're sharing ‘Following your steps’ by Foivos Dousos (@tyfoid), a two-part poem and reflection on the dawn of a new relationship. Foivos’s poems exploring intimacy are borne of the digital era, but what's striking about this poem is its evocation of pre-lockdown and its tactile experiences, like a first-time meeting with a lover interwoven into a (non-digital) landscape.
