A new poem for the Drunk With A Pen collection (which I guess is now 14.5 poems about drink and drinking).

Words by myself, art by Leanne Bayley (@_ikouyo).

Drunk With A Pen is a book of 13.5 illustrated poems, available to buy online from Etsy. Profits to charity. You can read more poems on :deviantart::

:new: A DD! Oh my crikey :heart: I'll be performing this (and 12 and a half or so) other poems in Brighton (UK), on Monday 10th July 2017. Details here. Here's 4 reasons to come!

Original Post: A new poem produced as part of my Drunk With A Pen poetry project. I've released this image across social media to promote my Hove Grown festival shows, in Hove (UK) on on 24th and 30th March 2017.  More Details.

Sippable work. The ad placement muddles it a touch.

Thank you. And the ad's there because a poet's gotta eat!

In seriousness, it's a small add for a local independent business who were willing to give me a little promotional support. It doesn't materially affect the piece (which was written way before I added the logos).

Congratulations on the DD! I was glad to see this clever piece by you; glad to 'see' you. How did the reading go? :heart:

Thanks LJ :love: The reading went well! Two shows, one a near-sell out, the other a minor disappointment. Pretty pleased overall. For some reason I'm doing it all again in July.
