Commercial: Poetry from Art
So. I read on Saturday night. At Tate Modern. On the 7th floor. Great views. Even better poetry. How I managed to sneak into such exalted company I'm not sure.
We sold 80 copies of the associated pamphlet. It's still on sale, at the Tate Modern bookshop. The cover looks like above.
And my poem was inspired by this work.
Tate Modern has just published an anthology of twenty-four poems created during Pascale Petit’s wonderful Poetry from Art courses in the Tate galleries. The pamphlet includes poems after Mona Hatoum, Francis Alÿs, Joseph Beuys and Mike Nelson. The book is on sale at Tate Modern.

Go get, etc etc.
