Hi folks,

Well, I'm appearing at 'The Pulse' in South London on Wednesday night, and my name is actually on the bill. In fact (and I know this is a little egotistical) it's at the TOP. After that I'm reading at Fishguard in West Wales on June 6th.

I'm doing five poems in a 15min set at The Pulse on a theme of 'value' with some cryptic chat in between.

This is the first one, you'll just have to imagine the performance, maybe a cross between Woody Allen and Jack Nicholson would catch it (who am I kidding!)

'Value'

There are many ways that
We can judge each other;
That we can value and
Devalue one another.

Looks is a good one; it's quick
And lots have fallen at this first fence:
Marrying - a good looking prick.

And then there's words, these can be fine,
But woe betide those spoken with
A fault, beneath the line,
From down below the salt.

Clothes maketh the man and
Fashion's easy to follow;
You just have to dress like
Someone you think they want to know.

And then there's place;
Oh that's a big one in my town;
One street wrong, even the wrong side
And you're permanently, permanently down.

But for those luckier ones, with
The looks, the words, the clothes,
Holding their place on the right side of
Our dreams - there
Is the value and how sweet it seems.

Hi folks,

'Break a leg' is a pretty universal expression, everyone's saying it to me!

Cheers, e.

Will,

Can I detect a touch of spring in the air? My guess is that you have got those pesky exams out of the way. The sun is shining, the sap's rising - bring on those cheerleaders!

I'm too old to look at cheerleaders now without feeling ashamed... :embarrassed:

Ah, to be 18 again and be able to blame just about everything on an overdose of hormones... dozey
