Yes, I do have some poetry events in my diary

1. Pity of War, St Michael Northgate, Oxford, Sat 13th Sept, 5.30 - 6.30pm

2. Poetry Weekend/Festival, Lower Shaw Farm, Swindon, 2nd to 5th Oct

3. Fiona Sampson reading, Albion Beatnik Bookstore, Walton Street, Oxford, Fri 17th Oct, 7.30pm

For a moment I had thought there was nothing on my horizon, but then I looked more closely and hit gold.

My French grandmother put dates of fascinating museum talks in her diary so she had things to look forward to and could invite friends to. My brother follows this rule.

Abegail: What kind of poetry most appeals to you?
Martin: Poetry with a least a hint of the essential and a genuine stink of the poet’s own fox.

This formatting is most peculiar, copying and pasting from someone's blog comes out like this sometimes. Anyway, what an answer. 'the poet's own fox' Wow. 

So, your own fox? Mine is much more uncompromising than I'd thought. Simple and violent. It definitely holds up a mirror to my internal world. I'm not what I thought I was.
