Submitted by dev on Sat, 11/07/2020 - 13:09

Poetry's Not Fu**ing Boring is back at Bradford Fringe Festival for a second year!

Continuing on from last weeks tasters with Luke 'Tatty' Hoggarth and Janine Booth, we're sharing some more awesome podcast poetry with you. This poem is by PNFB Collective Member Hayden Strawbridge - Look him up on twitter, he's the only one!

In Hayden's own word ~

I started writing poetry a few years ago while I was on placement in Pisa. I write about most things I observe and feel.

This specific poem was written when I ended up getting stranded in London and had to keep walking round on a cold December night, people didn't want to help me or even acknowledge my existence.

But just outside Euston station I met this fascinating character a man from Portugal we talked about politics and lots of random stuff, he also invited me to share in the warmth of his fire of burning papers.
