Toast: Another Poet

4 July 15 words: Toast
The local poet has something to say on the state of things in Bankers Dealers and Journalists

Tell us a bit about yourself...
Artist, writer and poet. Jaded football supporter and depressed philosopher. I'm worried about the apocalypse.

How would you describe your art?
I write in the early hours of the morning before breakfast on the Unbearable Futility of Being, and occasionally perform live spoken word sets on my main poetic preoccupations of chickens, football and the impending socio-economic collapse.

If you could collaborate with any artist, who would it be and what would you do?
I'd like to play a cameo role in Wes Anderson's completely fallacious biopic of my life.

Where can we catch you performing next?
Look for me at a forthcoming Phlexxibition gig at the Art Cafe, where I may do an impromptu five minutes to break up the zesty jolliness of it all. I'm afraid that the arena tour is sold out.

What’s the piece called?
Bankers Dealers and Journalists
