What the birds saw + a poetry gig this week

Most people just walked on
heading into the surprise heat of sun.
It made you close your eyes.
Bliss smoothed across your face,
the first time since October.

We swooped through a ballet
of unfurling limbs that reached across
grey screens. An empty stage
let the trees remind us.
We are all dancers.

And there's a poetry gig coming up this Thursday. I'll be reading work penned in the last year and a couple of very new pieces. Be great to see you there if you're in Brighton. Here's the info.

Thursday 23rd February 2012 - The Coach House

The Coach House is a unique and intimate venue in Brighton (Kemptown) and I'll be joining 4thirtythree, A K A and Tom Cunliffe in an evening of improvised music and poetry.
