People soup

Porridge tastes better in the dawn As water drips off my wetsuit  a chorus of chatter, of laughs and faint screams  and make mine a chocolate and don’t hold the cream. the sun slowly lighting us up as it lifts  and time is so precious  So relish the gift  and soon we’ll return to real…

Lucky number

So, as I said last time, I’ve started a new arts space here in stitchopolis. It’s my new baby and I’m loving it. I’ve come to realize That the genesis of this venture is a massive step for me. For Once instead of saying ‘one day I will do that’ I’ve just got up and…

How do you become a real poet? How do you get paid to write rhymes ? Do I quote intellectual- Would that be effectual? Or am I behind with the times. An agent? A slam night? Try open mic sessions… I’m serious  but there’s no exams like professions … Pay hundreds to study? Or will…
