For my second read in the Twelve Step Poetry Programme I picked up Wendy Cope's 'Making Cocoa for Kingsley Amis', this is part of a collection which has languised on my book shelf for many many years.
Unlike The Migraine Hotel by Luke Kennard which I loved this collectio just didn't hit the spot. Many of the poems are a woman's angst about men, she creates a mock The WasteLand (my favourite poem - which didn't go down well), and mixes in silly rhyming poems. I know she is loved, maybe I should select a different collection to read of hers and give her a second go.
Having said that I did enjoy 'Usquesbaugh' and 'E Pericoloso Spordersi' I loved the sound of the words in both.
My next poetry collection is of a very different type and will be reviewed later in the week.
As for today, I was supposed to be really busy working and planning but just not feeling it, will be cramming a little more in then cuddling up with a book and a bit plate of roasted vegetables. I just finished the BBCs adaptation of Dickens Little Dorrit which was fantabulous.
