Upcoming Readings

Well, we’re up a gum tree with Covid-19.   Readings from Weathereye: Selected Poems cut off in their prime.    I managed to get one in at the excellent Imperial Hotel, Merthyr in February; just as the door was shutting, a reading at Oriel Môn Llangefni was virtually cancelled, though it took place to an intimate audience – and thank you to Oriel Môn for their generous hospitality.   There will be another reading in Ynys Môn when the runes show favourably, with proper publicity; and cancelled readings at Ric Hool’s Poetry Upstairs in Abergavenny, at The Cellar, Cardigan, and in London, will take place as the virus permits – and more.   In the meantime, we’re virtually online.  Stay safe in good air, and may we all come through this, bless us.

...Only later they discovered DNA in common
with a small Saharan people:
great humidity out of the arid,
the underlying kinship of opposites,
like solidarity
only dancing in spirals.

They shared a meal of their different gutturals,
their tonalities
and their different teas
and afterwards they walked in a vaulting space.

From Kinship, 2000
