it’s valentine’s day, so beetroot-cacao lattes are
half price in Beanzz
– only £1.50, so i stay for two & write
pink-brown sweetish with almond milk in a small glass
Best latte in town.
Yesterday i had a tall green matcha in Urban Ground
but i was sceptical of the whiteness
of the almond milk / heart
like the tattoo-art aesthetic
Before the hermit people came out naked
we talked all night while we ate
about every meal we’d had & every beer we’d drunk
in every city in the world
we’ve been together
This week’s writing practice has been grounded in the realities of my daily life. Journalling & free-writing became a starting point for developing a poetic response in exploring the sonnet form through contemporary experimentation. I’ll be writing more about how this works in an upcoming post on 22nd Feb.
