God, I wish I could take her skin,
slit it at the back, like a zipper,
unravel the shrink-wrap flesh from muscle,
Two of my poems “Kitten In A Blender” and “As I Watch The Tour Guide Talking” appear in the latest anthology in the Black & BLUE series. The theme of this instalment was “revolution” and it was released – appropriately enough – on bonfire night. You can read more about the project and purchase a copy on Black & BLUE’s website. The issue itself is rather lovely, and features some excellent photography and typographically-innovative poetry.
Black & BLUE are a literary organisation based in Manchester. As well as producing a series of themed anthologies they also put together pamphlets and organise exhibitions and events featuring textual art and poetry. Their work is well worth a look.
