It is not even just another Burning Eye Book Launch Day. It is THE FIRST BURNING EYE BOOK LAUNCH DAY!
Drumrolls. Cannons. Fireworks. Hoards of flag waving children. Yep. None of that but instead we will have Ash Dickinson performing poems from his fresh off the press collection, Slinky Espadrilles.
Featuring poems about the fear of poetry, the state of premiership football, an embalmed wife/coffee table hybrid, pollution of the oceans, a love-sick fridge and knitwear for Gibbons, it is a collection polished in the harsh spotlight of a thousand performances. Some will tell you that performance poetry does not transfer to the page. If that was ever true then this collection puts that point of view on the spike for good. Time after time Ash makes us look at our world through his surreal and kooky lens, puts an arm round our shoulders and reassures us that it is OK for poetry to be funny. It is OK for poetry to entertain. The poetry police have enough on their hands mediating other disputes. No one is looking. Go on, enjoy yourselves!
