Autumn days when the grass is jewelled
and the silk inside a chestnut shell.
Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled,
all these things I love so well…
It’s that time again, poetry fans, the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. The season of pumpkins and falling leaves and slippers and apple crumble and baked potatoes and first frosts. The season of ace TV. It’s also, though I’m not going to tell you how many shopping days there are until Christmas (mainly because I put my fingers in my ears and lalalala very loudly when anyone tries to tell me), the season where you start seeing things in the shops and thinking “I’ll remember that next month”.
With that in mind, we have some pretty awesome treats lined up for you on the run up to Christmas, and the first is the latest in our Nasty Little Intro series.
Nasty Little Intro #5 comes to us courtesy of Mr Tristram Fane Saunders, a young poet who at nineteen years old has already been turning in some excellent reviews for his performances at the Edinburgh Fringe, and has appeared on the bill alongside such poetry royalty as John Cooper Clarke and Simon Armitage.
Tristram’s Intro is available for sale on the Nasty Little Press website for the incredibly reasonable price of £2. Don’t miss this opportunity, poetry fans, to pick up some poems by a serious young talent!
