‘Mesostic Stones’ is a collection of poems by Rob Lycett that expresses the experience of walking to a series of stone sites in Calderdale. They are written as mesostics, a poetic form often used by John Cage.

In these poems, the place name runs vertically through each page - structuring the language and rhythm. Each site is recorded with it’s Latitude and Longitude.
