"The Blue Book" by Owen Sheers (Seren, 2000)

Liked "Antonia's Story" best, but that's not saying much. I can't see why this book was published. Conkers are like "Miniature mines". "Feeling the Catch" begins in triplets. End-words are stutter/fizzing/gutter, first/neck/back, doorway/side/cold, there/sweat/sink, front/brazier/sermon, Drambruies/wide/flame, match/mouth/catch, nowhere/snap/breath, sigh/horse/eye. Line-lengths vary without a pattern I can see.
