For Romsey Art Festival
I spent a day writing poems in The Black Cat Cafe on Mill Road. Anyone could request a poem on any subject and I had to write it. It was a great challenge to get me writing more and writing poems I would not otherwise have thought of. It also took the usually lonely business of writing and made it a public performance where I was interacting with those who gave me prompts, wanted to chat about what I was doing or give me feedback on my work which was instantly published on the walls of the cafe and the virtual walls of the internet.
I wrote poems about breakfast, freedom, peace, travel and the local cemetery. I also wrote about a mystery Russian woman as prompted by a drunk Russian guy.
