Up in the Air – Poems on Video: Diaspora of Light

Here’s the latest in my series of readings from my poetry book, Up in the Air.

This time, Diaspora of Light – the real reason light travels so long and so far across the universe. Wearing a British Sea Power T-shirt, an indie group I’ve loved ever since seeing them at the first Latitude Festival.

Up in the Air – Poems on video: Weather Map

The first of an occasional series of videos in which I read poems from my book, Up in the Air.

I wrote Weather Map when I was living in a small flintstone folly owned by the National Trust on the edge of a housing estate in London. At the end of the garden was – beyond a tricky pile of thorny scrub – a beautiful and little-known tributary of the Thames, the River Wandle. I had just started going out with the lovely woman who was to become my wife.

So, here is me reading Weather Map. If you like it, leave a comment.
