Happy new year and all that jazz

Sorry I’ve been a bit slack with this of late. Life has simply gotten in the way.

I’ve had a busy few months which has included completing the first phase of the ‘Writing East Midlands: Write now sanctuary project’ which was has been an amazing project to be involved in.

I’ve also done a few shows here and there and had my first poetry collection accepted for publication (More news to follow on that).

I’ve hosted workshops at Sheffield Hallam university, Derby college, and Twenty-Twenty education so it’s been a very busy few months.

I’ve got loads coming up (and lots to be confirmed over the next few months) so keep checking back.

All the best and thanks to anyone who supported me in anyway last year!

Happy National Poetry Day! Here’s a Free Poem!

Common sewerage problem

Start life in terraced houses; end up dead in one.

Like packs of rabbits, heads numbed, crushed by jaws of ravenous dogs,

Lack of movement enabled to feed uninhibited sex drives.

They all fall down:

Everyone, everywhere; all due to their own mis-invention:

Not everyone was born a rocket scientist.

Mental is everyone outspoken and devoted to equality,

Seek retribution in confession; come, fornicate with your local disloyal priest

Kiss the feet of Jesus for he loves you.

Change the channel for the commercial break:

Signals beamed through satellites- all converge to form the same lies—

Swallowed and shat-out in rugged, municipal vines:

Everything is done for the prosperity of the common person—

Diversion tactics employed by tactile puppets on Illuminati strings:

To be pulled whenever they please,

Common bleeds the sense,

To drip,

Then trickle,

Down to the sewers:

To flow beneath the feet of power

UPDATE

Hi people,

It’s been a long time since I made any kind of blogpost so here goes: Over the last few months I’ve been back out performing selections of poetry from my collection. This has included greatly received sets at Twisted tongues, Deda Poets, The Lyric Lounge and The annual Nottingham Poetry Society Slam, in which I finished a respectable 3rd place. I have loads more coming up over the foreseeable future so please do check back for updates. For now head over to the Live/Readings section to check out when I’m next performing!

Until next time

Jamie
