Hardly A Kick..But Something’s A-Foot

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 this is
my foot
in eighty degrees
just before the
the Paraguay game
trying to get
a touch – in between
the poems & fifteen
of Bishop’s Castle’s
bravest students..
all that way for this
on all those trains –
so how how come
I ended up
on the girl’s side
with hardly
a kick?



this after a quick game of footie with the students in a break from poems on Saturday in Bishop’s Castle. After massive delays on the trains I finaly got home really late.The next day I went to a steaming Sunday worshop with the wonderful John Hegley (Poet/Comedian & Luton Town fan) .The first thing he asked us to do was draw our foot and to write something that had happened to it recently….a step in a new direction maybe?
