In prosody the stress, beat or rythmical accent of a poem
In medicine a seizure, a stroke or the beat of the pulse

Sebastian Barker 1945 - 2014
I realise I'm a bit behind with this but I heard today that Sebastian Barker passed away recently. He was an ambitious, engaging, anomalous poet as his father had been and - also like George Barker - never received much recognition for his "services to the Muse". A friend invited him to my book-launch last year but he couldn't come due to the cancer that's now carried him away.
