July saw Poets Out Loud competing for an audience against Croatia and England. Needless to say, our numbers were low that evening, but the poetry was once again varied and excellent.

Having fewer numbers, allowed us to play with the extra time given and it was used well. The post recital discussions generated by the poems and the topics they covered were refreshing and thought- provoking.

The next Poets Out Loud is 12th September. Don’t be shy, come along and see what it’s all about, or drop me a line for more information.

This month’s poem is from the Cockermouth poet, Flic Crowley. Enjoy!


It is a lightness in the air, a lilt in the voices, the look of the place.

It is all about revisiting a known geography, mapping the emptiness of that space between child and adult.

It is a personal cartography, discovering changed bearings, a shifting of territorial lines.

It is all about relearning, a register of routes.

How to return from delicate escapes. Flic Crowley, 25.1.99
