Now where did you get that hat

Heading for the wedding making that splash

The distant stare that takes me anywhere you lead

On down the rivulets of my imagining on

Course for your sea succour me in

Now where did you get that bow

From a bouquet teasing it all for

Show tempting my fascination arousing my

Agitation my lurking temptation securing

My distraction my phantom consummation

Now where did you get that hair

Standing proud I’d find you

Anywhere is that the inner you turned

Inside out to full view drawing me into

Your boudoir your deep enchanting couloir

Enraptured sisters this brother you captured

His sanity fractured with all to play

For no thing left to lose yet…

Let me be not forced to choose

I am so glad to have been part of this. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was expecting some good lyrical jamming, verbal slamming, egoes fighting for that coveted place of being the ‘winner’.  And it didn’t disappoint me. I really enjoyed listening to some edgy poetry by many north east poets. Of course, there has to be a winner and there was one – Aidan Clark who won the judges’ hearts with his clean and consistent performance as well as superb rendition of emotions through his poetry.

WorPoets did well to organise this in Newcastle. But the icing on the cherry were two young women walking through the door who wowed the audience with their confident poems. They looked a little vulnerable, but their poetry was strong and bold. We all loved them. I say, this event was just about that… capturing new talents, new voices. Brill.
