Living in Two Towns

PROMPT: Zoom In

Go South of the border, and west of the North Sea, or go North of the very South and West of London. You will find me there, in the little town with the big castle, the blockbuster film location and the single, short high street. I will be at the top or the bottom of the hill, depending on whether you go north or south first. I will be in a flat with my mum, or a house with my...

Let go.

PROMPT: Timeless Counsel

Dear me,

Let go of your friends. You know them. The two of them who manipulate, abuse, cling to, fight with you. They ask for your advice but never follow it. They complain to you when their life is gone to shit but will never do anything about it. They send you a list of your faults when you hold them accountable. Let go of them. You don't need them. They will never get better.

Let go of the man....

Why?

PROMPT: The Subject that Matters

The question I think I heard the most in high school was this: but miss, where will I use this?

The one that teaches kids why poetry is important as a historical document, where in the world outside of being a mathematician you might use complex maths, why physics matters when you're not a physicist, why art is useful in understanding politics.

I, personally,...

That's what they call romance.

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition 2017

I know this isn’t the way we’re meant to do this.
I’m supposed to steal your heart with your hoodie and your glasses and your identity, probably.
That’s what they call romance.
We sleep together; we drunkenly talk the night away.
We watch the sunset and take dumb photos of each other.
That’s what they call romance.
 
I know this isn’t the way we’re meant to do this.
Hell, we’re running away to Paris next month –
we’re running...
