When Poetry Comes to Town

It’s been a great week for giving and receiving poetry, as well as seeing it in its new home environment. 

Earlier this week, Alaina posted a picture of her growing art wall, of which a poem square and postcard poem are part of. 


Tuesday, Adam’s exchange poem arrived. This is the second of Adam’s poems I have. 


And yesterday, my poem arrived at Adam’s and I joked about posing a few of the Lego people with it. In true Adam style, he exceeded himself. 


“Lonely Stormtrooper and Lego Writer Man ponder the subtext of metaphors.”

The thrill of seeing my work in the wild is absolutely on par with seeing my books out there in circulation. But in a slightly different way. 

Post It Note Poetry, Finale

My computer and phone have been unable to sort out their syncing issues and I’ve therefore lost photos from my phone as well as being unable to download old photos to my computer. Thus the dearth of #pinp17 pics in the last fortnight. If you’ve been following on Instagram or Twitter you’ll have seen the second half unfold, including references to a sex tape, astral travel and cannibalism. 

Good news is, I’ll have the second half professionally scanned tomorrow and I’ll be putting the entire ‘Get In Trouble’ series up in a dedicated gallery. There are 30 in total. 

I’ve got additional good news pending with the postcard poems. I’ll share once I’ve finished ironing out the details, but suffice to say, I am very close. It’s exciting to see a vision find flesh and bones. 

Until then, the curtain closer for the month, which could quite easily have been the curtain raiser (every poem has this poem at its heart!!)
