The Boy Gray

It's taken me a while to get around to posting this (sorry, very busy trying to be work-organised), but I recently entered a poetry competition for Jawdance, a spoken word night at Rich Mix in Shoreditch.

Poems had to be inspired by one of these photographs, and uploaded as an audio recording less than a minute long. I managed to win with The Boy Gray, my third poem below, and so got to perform it with the other seven winners at last week's Jawdance event. And forgot the words half way through. But *I* won, so ner.

Here are the poems, anyway:

The Art of Cinema, circa 2011

The Art of Cinema, circa 2011
Hey!  We've made everything look even closer/further away than it's supposed to in real life!

On Friday I went to see Thor.  In 3D.  It wasn't very good.  And I found the 3D distracting.  It just didn't quite ring true.  It wasn't anywhere as near as intrusive as the 3D in the trailer for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie though, which consisted almost entirely of people pointing various weapons at the audience followed by Captain Jack Sparrow delivering an unfunny one-liner.

Disappointment all round.  Ah well.  Still, both were vastly superior to the 3D in Alice in Wonderland.
