Yours Truly

by johannespunkt

Dear All,

I wrote a long poem on twitter, and the marvellous Ria Gray read it aloud, and also had some very nice things to say about me. You can listen to her magnificent interpretation here: or read it for yourself here:

Ria is a good friend of mine and a better poet. Her poems are like half-rusted keys you find hanging off trees, which then proceed to fit a lock you clasped onto a bridge-railing years ago; it’s okay now to drop the weight into the canal. This one still gives me shivers, for example:

If you for some reason want to have me talk about my poem, just grab me and ask me. I’m all yours.

Your Truly,
