Reading - Ashmoleum

15 June.

I'm joining two poetry tours of the Ashmoleum at 12.30pm and 2.30 pm with an old student of mine,  Andrew Smardon, who is an excellent poet,  I will be reading (twice), 'In True Colours',  a poem from my recent book, Strange Horses, that was inspired by the famous and weird painting, 'The Forest Fire' by Piero di Cosimo.

I'll be reading it, in the gallery in front of the actual picture.
Andrew will also be reading his fine poem, 'Aestel', on the Alfred Jewel, which is also in the museum  -
should be fun!

new poem published

The New Statesman say they plan to publish a new poem of mine called 'Paying the Mortgage', this Friday, 7 June, 2013.  This will be the fourth poem of mine they've published.
