juggernaut/real talk/enjambed bliss/that’s just me

rough soundscape / spoken word in collab with Anuka Ramischwili-Schafer, featured on Free Cash takeover by Ruth Angel Edwards and Adam Gallagher on Cashmere Radio (Berlin) – I’m sure the full 17 hours will turn up at some point

 

not yet / that’s just me pamphlet, and review essay on Bernard and Marriott

So just published ‘not yet / that’s just me’ with Goldsmiths Press as a commission for the ‘Transparent Things’ exhibition at the Goldsmiths Centre of Contemporary Art. The poetry pamphlet is part of a joint publication that can be picked up at the exhibition so do visit (outside strike days). I imagine it will be available online at some point.

 

Also an essay on Jay Bernard and D. S. Marriot’s most recent collections was published in the latest Poetry London (message me for a copy of the essay). I look at musicality, sociality and critical race poetics in the main.

 

Recent work: Wu Tsang, Symrun, Petero Kalulé
