Liquid inspiration and a little perspiration …

I was chuffed that my wonderful local newspaper were interested in writing a feature about my time as cafe poet at Blackstar Coffee in West End. But I have been left a tad disappointed that so much attention was focused on my medical issues – particularly after I specifically asked the reporter to not use the graphic word ‘vulva’. Not exactly what you want to be reading over your tea and scones, now is it?

Had the feature included what I’ve actually been doing at Blackstar – the tags, the magical box, hanging poetry in toilets and posting it to the walls of the cafe – it would have answered any questions readers may have about my time at Blackstar and how I’m trying to contribute to my community. Peace out!
