I have a new spoken word poem published on Baby Teeth Journal!
‘Don’t feed’ was inspired by a real life experience of feeding Schmackos to a magpie, then suddenly finding myself surrounded by many feathered Schmacko enthusiasts! At the time my city, was about to enter a lockdown and I remember wondering what would happen if, in our absence, these birds decided to take over? The result was this weird, spooky poem.
I’m at National Young Writers Festival this year! I’ll be doing a Late Night Reading called Cringey Diaries 😂😬 and chatting with Alison Evans about writing trans stories (as part of the Younger Young Writers program) 🏳️⚧️🌈

Ray/Rei Cox and I co-wrote a poem about the basil plant that travels with her in their van. And it’s been published in Cordite Poetry Review 102: GAME!
I recommend viewing the desktop/full version and reading from the bottom upwards.
