A fun day with former colleagues on Sunday, as I joined Cassy and Nicole in the Kent Cultural Baton at the Faversham Transport Festival.
It was great to take some time out and jot down a few words in response to the prompts.
Blackout Poetry proved to be popular , with the listing of the different buses and coaches in town inspiring this piece: (I’ve written it out underneath – and will admit to tweaking it slightly!)
Following single body design
rebuild generation chassis
Dual purpose enabled
Long distance, full front
Forward entrance; sliding door
Still successors, still operators
Platform operated delay
During the day
Replace worn out stock
Off the peg
Time, painted green
Village’s one man noddy vans
Cassy gave me a link to the blackout poet who inspired her. His name is John Carroll and you can find him at Make Blackout Poetry.
Other prompts included why you can’t write today…
… and what it’s like to explore.
