Poetry

I only recently got into poetry after discovering that everyone else was doing it wrong and that was most likely the reason I didn’t like poetry to start with. So I set about learning how to do it properly. Here you’ll find my poems and the odd article on the hows, whys and what the fucks of poetry.

I thought I should maybe probably write a little post to cover my tracks. You’ve probably noticed that after only a few weeks of the poetry challenge, I gave up. Well, there’s a good reason for that, I gave up cos I’m shit. You see, my plan was to read the week’s theme on a […]

Well this poetry thing isn’t going well at all. I’m a week behind and only coming up with partial works. Still, I might as well post what I’ve done, if for no other reason than to show that I’ve not just given up. So here’s this week’s. Or is it last weeks? Anyway, the theme […]

This weeks theme is my exposed body. I suspect this was meant to be an attempt at getting me to write an honest (brutally so) poem that left me exposed as a “good” poet should. However, since I tend to write in character I had a lot of trouble getting into it. Consequentially, this is […]

I’m Sexy and a Poet

C.J. Dennis, poet, journalist and comic, ca. 1910 / photographer unknown

We didn’t do poetry at school, as far as I can remember, although we may have skirted it on occasion. But mostly, thanks to the set system, I was one of those deemed not clever enough to bother teaching poetry to. So it passed me by. It was the Channel 4 show, 8 Out Of 10 […]
