Venue: The Crown
Spoken word open mic, plus special guests.
No dreamers these but hard-bitten men
Used to all the tortures of Old Feathery Legs
— The black villain who rides every crested wave
North of 65 degrees — he and his accursed legions,
The fog, the blizzard, the black-squall and the hurricane.
from ‘The Wreck of the Swan’ by Hugh MacDiarmid
