More from Featured Poet Simon Freedman


You’ve already met Simon, this week’s Featured Poet… you can also visit his website, hear some recordings of his poetry, and read his ONS Guest Post. He’ll be interviewed here tomorrow but in the meantime, here’s another great poem, which was recently published in Gloom Cupboard

Pastures New

When I left home and moved to England
I had a lot to learn.

People in the street would struggle
with my wearing shades on cloudy days.

Oi wanker, they would cheer,
go fuck yourself.

Chianti for breakfast and scrumpy for lunch
is considered a social faux pas.

The dog’s bollocks means that something is good
and What are you like? is a rhetorical question.

And when you received my bow-legged attempts
at flirtation and wit with stinging contempt

I now know that what you meant to say
was take me.
