Second Half.

Stomach-gripping tension.
Do we trust the fates too much to believe
this lead will hold?
Could half-perfect Halfpenny’s half-freakish, half-time miss
be the code for the way this will unfold?

Nerves seem to have got the players too.
Bodies fly into bodies round the fringes of the breakdowns.
Errors abound:
an overcooked kick, a pass spilt
a rolling maul driving headless into touch
and then relief. Read the rest of this entry »

Slam on the Water II, Regents Canal-side, Broadway Market Sat 3rd March 2012

with 3 comments

On a sunny but cold day in mid January, we experimented with running a slam from the top of the bookshop barge at Broadway Market, which turned out to be a massive success. Due to popular demand – we’re going to do it again on March 3rd at 2pm. We’re looking for poets to take part and people to come and judge them or just watch and enjoy.

To You

“The apparent causes are nearly always trivial and to the superficial eye unjustified. The theory of a few hooligans is not only dangerous but without sense. I know of no instance where a few hooligans have  disrupted a major public function, unless they knew or sensed that public opinion was either on their side or at least netural.” (C.L.R. James, Beyond a Boundary, 1963 – discussing a different riot on a different continent in a different decade sparked by different catalysts)  Read the rest of this entry »

Slam at the Floating Bookshop, Broadway Market Sat 14th Jan 2pm

leave a comment »

I’m hosting a slam from the top of a barge-bookshop that’s moored on the canal at Broadway Market during market day at 2pm Saturday 14th January. So that’s pop-up poetry at a pop-up bookshop on a pop-up market. Triple pop-up in your face. Poets come down and slam, passers by turn up and judge or watch and cheer while they eat their artisan breads and drink boho coffee-cider.
