Poetry: BRIDGES (again…)

Hello all. In case you haven’t read/ listened to it yet, I’m re-posting BRIDGES, my first poetry mixtape/ anthology. Mainly spoken word (so you get to hear my voice) with a handful of printed verse in there as well. You can read/ listen below. Also available for free download in booklet and mp3s.

Enjoy.

Click here to read BRIDGES

Click here to download the BRIDGES booklet and all audio tracks

Watch the video for ‘Like Gatsby at Thirty’, below (by the excellent team at Let Them Talk Productions):

Or you can listen to the tracks direct, below:

01 Midwinter Spring

02 Like gatsby at Thirty

03 The Real Deal Dilettante Fraud

04 Unimagined Forces at the Royal Festival Hall

05 Context!

06 Like Gulliver among the Houyhnhnms

07 The Literary Dress Code (an extended metaphor)

I would recommend that you read BRIDGES as you would any other collection of poetry, but, for maximum impact, you should listen to the audio tracks simultaneously. The BRIDGES download includes mp3 files of each song so you don’t have to re-visit this page for the audio. Once again, you can find the complete download here:

As ever, enjoy.

Best wishes,

    • Thank you thank you thank you… *bows graciously*

      I sometimes struggle to work out what medium to write in (poetry, spoken word, rap, etc) and ‘Bridges’ is the closest I’ve come to rolling it all up into one cohesive unit.

      Thanks again for your kind words!

      • I know exactly what you mean. But at the end of the day I believe that they are all rooted in the same art form. The dopest emcees are witty and creative with their wordplay and metaphors…the same goes for the poets. Really enjoyed your pieces and the production underneath was the perfect complement.

        Normally I will “like” or just “follow” a blog that I feel is relevant, but I actually bookmarked yours too LOL

    • Man – really REALLY pleased that you enjoy it! I produced the music for this as well, taking a Daft Punk sample and reversing/ filtering it before adding the percussion and bass. Creates a very introspective tone.

      Thanks again!
