Leftlion Review

Ayup me ducks,

March has been very kind to yours truly. I did a feature slot at the awesome ‘Howl’ in Moseley, Birmingham & also did a feature set at The Hand-Job-Zine Anthology launch. There’s a review of the event below by the one & only Leftlion of Nottingham which is rather complimentary yours truly, give it a gander:

I’ve loads of gigs booked in for the forthcoming months including a feature slot at “Howl” in Birmingham on March 8th. Head over to the Live section for more information.

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

Gigs galore & Residency

A-up mi ducks,

It’s been a very busy time: I’ve countless readings/performances coming up so head over to the live/readings page to find out when and where!

I’ve also secured a position as the shadow-writer-in-residence for the Writing East Midlands:Write here-Sanctuary Project. This is a project aiming to support refugees and Asylum seekers in the facilitation of their own stories written in English. I’m ultra-mega-proper happy to be involved in such a wonderful venture and I’m looking forward to doing my bit to make refugees welcome here in Derby!

I also have some other amazing news but I’m not allowed to tell you that yet….

In the meantime check this, buy tickets and come!
