MY BOOK RIDES (IN THE TRADITION OF TED BERRIGAN)

“I began writing train poems on the London tube in 2008-2009. I sat there scribbling into notebooks as the train went from one stop to the next.” 

I’m talkin about train poems & my process for writing Rides on H_ngm_n magazine today:

It is partly inspired by Ted Berrigan’s Train Rides (picture below).

Rides is part of my nomadic surrealist project. It is a lifelong writing project.
