I went to see my friend Roy McFarlane in a performance at the Midland Arts Centre (MAC) tonight. I was early for the 8 p.m. start I thought it was, only to be told as I picked up my ticket that the show started at 7.30. Why did I think it was 8??
It was an evening organised by Britain’s leading poetry company Apples and Snakes, and showcased four very different poets.
Watching them I had a yearning to be back on stage, a feeling I haven’t had in a long time. Maybe I’ve been too focused on writing and have neglected performing.
