The wonderful Bruno Davey (who was part of Take It & Run), has started a literary blog called This is Yours. He describes it as “a gang of people who love music and writing, and who put on and put out both for free.”
I’m delighted to be part of the gang – my piece about my watch/grandparents features in issue one alongside lots of other lovely stuff. I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for childhood at the moment, which maybe explains why my favourite piece is On These Streets by Binky Hyde
On these streets I sipped cider in the streetlight
Smoked cigarettes that weren’t mine
Leant out bedroom windows on dark nights.
On these streets we gave backies on our bikes,
Sucked blue raspberry ice pops on rooftops
