Procrastination Station #39


I really don’t want to give too much attention to this issue or this woman at all — but I do agree that, regardless of other factors, Mr Walcott’s poetry is truly incredible, and we all need to remember that // in other news: Benjamin Zephaniah!

Ten Questions for Poetry Editors

Jim gave me a heads-up to the Top 100 Poetry Blogs, and particularly How A Poem Happens. Thanks Jim!

How to deal with distractions.

A great list poem from the Writer’s Almanac.

Found online this week: A great series of choruses from Eric Hamilton’s latest poetry project // Former Featured Poet McGuire on Summer Apples // Input/Output from ONS regular Col // New work from former FPs Ryan Lamon, Morganne Couch and Chris Lindores // Blood Pudding Press, being nice about ONS. Buy some of their stuff!

Tattoo stuff!: I am always wary of this particular tattoo, but I think this example is lovely // a tattoo for maths geeks! // a gorgeous gallery of tattoo photos // a gorgeous gallery of tattoo paintings

Weird conditions of the human mind…

I just discovered a load of cool new photo blogs: Happiest People Ever // Awkward Family Photos // Junk Shop Photos (some via)

I also love Maybe You Shouldn’t Buy That new writing pen, anyone?!

Terrifying diets.

And finally… love this!

Have a great weekend! x

    Hello. I love that Sheena Pugh (great poet, saw her reading a few weeks ago) pointed out, quite rightly, that scandal doesn’t stop anybody reading or writing great poetry; a lot of the Guardian columnists often come out with the weirdest and laziest of remarks. “Real poets are rare” — what’s a “real” poet - someone who wears a tudor smock and rhymes well?

    Oh, Claire- you’ve outdone yourself today… what a great post!
    I esp. liked the Benjamin Zephaniah interview, the Summer Apples poem , the tattoo- that is a good one!- and the photo blogs- hilarious!
    Well done!
    Oh, and that whole business of the scandal- I find it very sad.

    Cheers for the link, Claire. I just scrolled down and realised that I haven’t posted any comments here in a while. Sorry about that. Love getting these link lists, it saves so much time not having to trawl the net for interesting poetry!

    Walcott is amazing! But what does everyone have against him? What happened exactly?

    All those beautiful tattoo photos make me want to go get more…now!! Alas, such things cost $$$. Thank you for the link inspiration.
