Dada Doll published 18/08/2017

I reflected on how one of the almost banal motifs of the current humanitarian disaster, that is the refugee crisis, is the use of old containers – foundation blocks of global trade – to provide temporary housing (including most recently for unaccompanied children left unhoused by the destruction of the Jungle). I imagined making a contemporary dada doll out of a container – not within my power to realise actually – so settled on the spec instead.

Duos #3 – Non fast Colours published 12/08/2017

fashion orthodoxies collapse
in heaven, in the mist
the abandoned carpark
my excessive fear
of yellow, challenged
by police or by those other people
happy like me
in the carpark of death
I dream of
needle water
of history, passing
through that yellow river
of pissing, being pissed on
or off, constantly, as the case may be

In the third of the Duos series, new poetry by Richard Barrett and Sally Barrett.

The Poem Brut #9 – Three untitled visual poems published 11/07/2017

Of an orange grove, the bees visited the flowers

At midnight, a bee hit the window of shed and died
An eyelid stung by a bee, only the pain tastes honey

The murmur of traffic filtered from the honeycomb

A buzz in a small town will be torpor by the mead

New visual poetry by Hiromi Suzuki.

Poetry is an Opportunity published 06/07/2017

Poetry is an opportunity, even a challenge or askance, to be complex, ambiguous, playful with the fact of daily normative, comforting language, and when its used just to make a straightforward statement, with line breaks, I don’t mind of course, not a big deal, but it does surprise me. It’s not as though a lot of people read poetry, if you’ve a message you need to get out to people clearly and widely, perhaps another medium might make sense?
