I just saw some tired people struggling with rucksacks, the last vestiges of glitter and neon paint still visible at the edges of their weary faces. Ah, back from Bestival, I thought. Which marks the end of the season, really, so please feel free to reminisce whilst listening to this poem.
My next gig is at the Mascara Bar, Stoke Newington, with the Morning Star’s “Well Versed” poetry column. Appearing on the night: Tim Wells, Phil Jupitus (in his Porky the Poet guise) Chimene Suleyman, Niall O’Sullivan, Angry Sam, Lucy Ayrton and more!
