stay safe

Hi folks. I hope you and those you care about are all well, and keeping a safe distance from Covid-19. These are strange times we’re living in, and I’ve been doing my best to make sense of it (and keep myself relatively sane) by writing. What else would I do, after all? This meant that when Poetry on Loan commissioned me to write and film a poem about life under lockdown, I jumped at it. I apologise in advance for the film quality (I was holding my iPhone while trying to read the words on my laptop) the state of my hair (it’s been a while since I left the house) and the raggedy agedness of my t-shirt (see house excuse above). 

You can watch the film on Youtube here.

And the text of the poem is on the Poetry on Loan website, here.

If it strikes a chord and you want to share it, please do. Looking forward to catching up with you all whenever it’s safe for us to meet up once more.

Stay safe.
