NOTE FROM CULPEPER COMMUNITY GARDEN IN LONDON

Note from Culpeper Community Garden in London

Sitting
On my lunch break
In the public garden
Feeling blue
Because work is busy
Because I don’t know
Because it’s autumn
And the leaves are turning
When a stranger
In a Harrington jacket
Asks to swap his banana
For my Tunnock’s tea cake
And it’s bizarre
Because I was reading a poem
About fruit
And I laugh
And say yes
And peel the banana
And realise
I don’t feel blue
Any more

ONLY POETRY ISN’T SHIT

‘Poetry is the one thing that isn’t contaminated, the one thing that isn’t part of the game. Only poetry—and let me be clear, only some of it—is good for you, only poetry isn’t shit.’

Roberto BolaƱo, 2666 (Picador)
