Fun reading last night!!! Really super enjoyed it. Good to feel the enjoyment. The pleasures of poetry/language/community.
Really super happy to read from new work in the chapbook Balloons . .
I like Balloons . . .
I like the chapbook . . .
the paper and string and smell of nail varnish on the cover . .
Did an exchange with Colin Herd and picked up his book

Really excited to dig in!!!

great to meet so many fine folks . . .
great to see Jonty Tiplady with Balloons down his trousers . .
great to catch up with close friend Michael Zand . . .

Big big big thank you to Steven Fowler for being one hella of a host and organising these readings and doing something really different and gutsy for the London poetry world with his Maintenant reading series with European poets . . .
