Book launch night.

Here I am, compering a 3 book launch night at the Poetry Cafe, Covent Garden. My part in the books’ creation was as typeset, production and publishing – everything but the words. This rather excellent evening concluded with fine pale ale in a proper old “nuclear sub”.

The Lover’s Pinch

posted in: art, Books, Poetry | 0

Totally delighted to be the publishing part of this new collection by Brecon poet Gareth Writer-Davies.  Here, in 68 pages, Davies fleshes out his twin subjects of love and sex in poems of affection, sardonic humour and a characteristic lightness of touch that makes his first collection both exceptionally readable and an intimate pleasure. So the blurb says…  Anyway, buy one <here> it’s a gorgeous publication.

BREXIT

Why
Does this smell like 1914?
Whispered breeze shakes sullen leaves
Fruit ripens, bursts
Powdered bees dance still to the sun.
But what is that on the east wind
Drums?
