Stuff about the city where I live!

Voices from Grenfell

07/12/2017 - 18:30

Join Second Home and Words of Colour Productions for an evening in recognition of the tragedy of Grenfell Tower.

There will be a screening On the Ground at Grenfell - which won the Portobello Film Festival 2017 Best Film Award - and hosting a discussion with filmmaker Adrianne McKenzie.

7-Minute Itch

28/11/2017 - 19:00

Janine will be giving the first and possibly only performance of her as-yet unpublished long poem 'A Tale of Two Cities (The Rich and the Towerful)' about the Grenfell Tower fire.

Plenty of other poets and performers will be doing their thing, at an evening devoted to longer spiels than we rhymesters usually do.

Venue: Rehab Hackney, 271 Well Street, London E9 6RG 

Scales of Injustice

Pick up the leaflet
pick up a pen
Rate on a scale of nil to ten
how broken is your heart
how much your life is rent apart
Rate your mental state
Is it three or six or eight?

Rate on a scale of nil to ten
Where nil is
I don't give a toss about them'
And ten is
'I'll never feel intact again'

My Love Loves the River Lea

My love loves the River Lea
Discovered in recovery
Visits uncover mystery
On trips with children one, two, three
Took looks and books and maps and found
His sanctuary, his way around
Walking Summer at Rammey Marsh
Fetch the ball tossed in the grass
A cup of tea and a water tub
At the café by the rowing club

Night Tube

It’s pushing two o’clock
And Julie and Sue
Are heading home after pogoing to
A Buzzcocks tribute band
They wear the brand
Got the T-shirt, got the buzz
Fallen in love
Probably shouldn’t have
Their youngests are old enough
To be out with mates
Or out on dates
So their mums can stay out late
It’s one of those nights
What do I get? Love bites.
