  • In a biography accompanying the poem Andy Jackson says: ' "9/10/1973, M3' is, among other things, a poem about my relationship with my father. He died on that date, when I was 2 years old - I have no memories of him. A while ago, I decided to visit his grave. It proved to be difficult, but not in the way I expected. Given the general area, M3, I still couldn't find it. We often think that we have a profound spiritual connection with those who have died. This may be true. But it is also true that, to quote myself from a similar poem, "each life will make its sense with absence as much as fact". Oh, and it's written in the second person because it's about you'.
