Back in 2009, filmmaker Keith Allot made a film of me performing the below poem. Since then the piece has changed quite a lot – mainly in it’s performance but also in an alteration to its ending. The talented writer, activist and filmmaker, Ambrose Musiyiwa recently reposted the film on Facebook and fellow writer, Andrew Walton suggested it might be useful to see it on the page. The poem will actually feature in my forthcoming collection, ‘The Venus Papers’ due for publication by Burning Eye Books in 2015 – but until then, here it is – with thanks to people for the interest.
