So I like to write words and I like music too and I’m working on an EP combining these things. One of my tracks was chosen by my lovely friend and very good rapper Mikill Pane as one of the songs he’d like to play whilst on Scroobius Pip’s XFM hip hop spoken word show, The Beatdown. Regardless of the fact my track got played on it, you should all listen to the show every Saturday anyway because Scroobius Pip is great and he knows about good music and poetry. My song got played on the 3rd week, but the show is every Saturday at midnight and its GOOD.
Listen to it here.
A little video of Early doors, the poetry collective I belong to. Filmed and edited by Charlie Carr-Gomm.
I pour a Fosters.
Look at the clock.
He pays in coppers and tries to hold my hand for too long.
Asks me what I do for my ’ real job’.
' I'm a poet, I suppose'.
He just laughs,
And moves closer to my side of the bar.
I’m a bit scared of life.
I’m a little bit scared of not getting it right.
