Two local poets, two fresh takes on the everyday.
Gray’s verse contains a subtext of social commentary amid the wordplay and puns. What if starlings had to audition to take part in their murmurations? How did a dying replicant’s last words made him appreciate Cornwall?
Ax Gimp, failed rock star (and Colin’s alter ego) presents a performance peppered with poems, sprinkled with songs, appended with anecdotes and littered with lies.Ax has many excuses for failing to ascend to the level of underground hero.
‘Ax hasn’t failed; he’s just found 10,000 ways that won’t work,’ – Thomas Edison
