How it begins …

May 12, 2009

I am sitting on the floor surrounded by hundreds of photocopies of Colette, Daljit & Jo’s poems, trying to sort them into the sections which will make up the length of the show. I envisage the show to be like a party, where the poets are introducing themselves to each other and to the audience through their poems. So I’ve got one pile of introduction poems, one of cheery anecdotes, one of beery confessions, one of poems that could only be spoken alone, in the locked bathroom of a party host’s house, and one of poems that hint at who might eventually go home with whom. The show is shaping up – Julia, producer.
