Paignton, Devon has a new evening for your diaries: In conjunction with Peaky Blinders Bar, Paignton a night of entertainment is on its way, a night that will deliver the best in spoken word, and comedy as well as offering opportunities to members of the audience to participate. The first evening will see the Professor of Whimsy Robert Garnham headline, and will include performances by myself and other poets. The plan is to have some great poets headlining each month and for this night to become a regular fixture that will offer a truly diverse range of styles. Expect frivolity and the emotionally moving in equal measure – expect off the wall and the surreal, dark and passionate ramblings – expect to be entertained. Speaky Blinders – Spoken Word at Peaky Blinders Bar, Paignton
So by the order of the Speaky Blinders – get yourself there ,
April 5th 2018.
Here is a poem to whet your appetite: Round The Corner
Give me another
As I express
Those feelings that
And nourishment for the soul.
Brought about by the experience
Of all that is
For life can be tailored only by you.
It can be cut from the finest cloth
Or woven by threads that are coarse and crude.
But what do I know?
My that’s nice.
Just the right amount of heat.
Frothy with the steamed milk moustache
Caramel coloured reverie
Sprinkled with a dust of something
What will spring to mind next?
I fold the paper and place it on the empty seat beside me.
Knowing that although danger could be round the corner
I am ready to enter the Lion’s den
Jason Disley (March 27th 2018)
