Physical – Andrew Mcmillan
Astonishingly raw and personal poetry about male sexuality, tenderness and young love. Every piece feels like it is written for you and you alone.
Alice in Winterland – Julie Egdell
Stark, honest poetic ‘memoir’ twisting fairy tales with Soviet history to great effect.
Howl and Other Poems – Allen Ginsburg
The only tattoo I have is of the word Howl. Enormous, acidic take on America, humanity and the loss of hope.
73 Poems – E.E.Cummings
There are probably better Cummings books but this was my first. His use of language is unparalleled and some of his work leaves me breathless with its depth
Basho – The Complete Haiku
My first and most powerful love. Three lines, complete perfection.The truest form of expression.
