i am in London Town this coming Saturday (Sept 6th) eating large, celebratory mouthfuls of lemon meringue pie + reading POEMS to launch my pamphlet EDIBLES
if you either live in London or fancy a pan-continental trek to say ‘HI!’ the launch is at The Rugby Tavern, from 7pm GMT
there will be artisanal cocktails (not really) / nibbles (quite possibly) / actual human beings (me + at least one other)

this book represents 5 years’ worth of work, condensed into 33 pages
feels like it may be the ‘best’ thing i’ve done so far, in terms of writing idk 😉
