My poetry performance on sky..


This was for a show called Where its at. They found me from a magazine called The New Writer, who had recomended me as an upcoming poet.. how nice.. This one relates to my new day job at the time of Career advisor to out of work musicians…an irony I was attempting to elucidate..

Eat Plastic

Don’t eat plastic, they said

Of course not, he said,

I only eat stuff that you put next to food and around water.

Don’t eat plastic, they said

Of course not, he said

I only eat stuff that you put in children’s mouths.

Don’t eat plastic, they said

Of course not, he said,

I only eat organic stuff

That comes from the ground.

Don’t eat plastic they said

Of course not, he said

I only things which float in the sea,

I only eat things that fill Albatross bellies,

I only eat what man makes best,

I only eat what never decays,

I only what is clean and pretty…

 

Don’t eat plastic, they said.

 

Gotta do something with it, he said,

Crunching the head off his Barbie doll

and Sainsburies’ bag sandwich.

……

True, they said,

Eat plastic.
