I’ve missed the last few Seasonally Effecteds, so I thought I’d mosey on up this month and catch up with all the lovely people who frequent Dot Cafe (last Wednesday in the month, varies occasionally, check before leaving), as well as try my hand with the Splice app again.
Another excellent mix of folks took to the mic; here’s a video snapshot:
The reason for laughter at the end? Roy was too quick for me and we did a little stop-start dance before we got the final take!
In order of appearance: Tendayi Sutherland; Thomas Kelly; Toby Marsh; Sam Rapp; Gavin Alexander; Nigel Adams; Lionesse X; Mike Orvis; Razz Saunders; Rachel Lowrie.
Visit www.seasonallyeffected.wordpress.com – email Roy if you want a slot at the next one.
A fun day with former colleagues on Sunday, as I joined Cassy and Nicole in the Kent Cultural Baton at the Faversham Transport Festival.
Indigo eyes of the exterminating angel
Forewarn of potential danger
A wreath of barbs in the tear garden
Create a fiendish tangle
Her grimy soul in isolation
Catches rain within her hands
Weeping song drips through her fingers
And sings a note of salvation
Pity their ignorance in the joy of diversity
Forgive their joy in the pursuit of bigotry
Refuse to kow tow to conformity
The Reaper will have her revenge.
This is a new piece of artwork by Richard Jefferies in his Goth on My Keyboard series.
After contributing poems responding to Richard’s wonderful character for his Goth on My Keyboard charity book, Richard produced a new image for a reading I gave at a Seasonally Effected evening. The result was the Reaper poem above, which doesn’t appear in the book.
If you’d like to contribute to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, you can find a link to the book in my original blog post here, which gives you more information on the charity.
