For the reader? Spoken word? Performance art? Can a poem be all three? #DalsonBallet

house of o’dwyer for Dalston Ballet



Crouch down

bent double

over the counter


blunt force trauma

fill the empty interior

shut me up


shut me down

manage the beast

stop the hysteria


work for the tongue

roughly speaking

worship and adore


under the weather

come in my eye

post traumatic stress disorder


let me go

out patient

I can suck at it myself


taste the meat

feel the heat

down I come


enjoy the ache

Medicate me

choke on me



i don’t need anyone

the taste of it


he’s back, for more

I can’t take all of it

split in two


brain on the floor

rub my face in it

fight me for it


ride me home

teach me what

my mouth is for

In refusing to lie

Refusing to lie about it

To lie about it all


About what I know

All what I know

I know I will


I will I know

In refusing

Refusing to lie


Lie about it

What I know

I wlil I know


I will be


Reduced to silence


To silence

through the disgust until you find one true sentence, a few words that

say more than you expected, something you didn’t know until you

set it down.’ – Naomi Alderman

C. #writingQuotes #A2Z #Colette


‘… tempting paper, at such frantic speed that sometimes one’s hand

struggles and rebels, overdriven by the impatient god which guides

it – and to find, next day, in place of the golden bough that bloomed

miraculously in that dazzling hour, a withered bramble and a

stunted flower.” – Colette
