Beginning With Your Last Breath


Inspired!  Roy McFarlane, former Birmingham Poet Laureate, blew us away at the Worcestershire Litfest & Fringe Speakeasy, performing poetry from his book; ‘Beginning With Your Last Breath’.

Roy’s performance was intimate, interactive, and ingenious.  His poetry… superb.  ‘Beginning With Your Last Breath’, published by Nine Arches Press, is a tale told twice.  First, through the pages of this brilliant poet, then remembered, igniting something I never imagined.

And I suggest you do!

Fragile Houses


Delighted, Baldy got his hands on ‘Fragile Houses’ (and his pal, poet, Nina Lewis)!  Nina’s debut pamphlet, published by V. Press, is an extraordinary journey through family history and relationships, penned with poetic precision.  There was a subtle sense of peeking at secrets and the joyous jog of pages read, and read again in one sitting, I loved ‘Fragile Houses’.

I felt connected to ‘Connections’ and thoroughly absorbed the other poems.  I was already a fan of Nina Lewis, enjoying her performances at a great many spoke word events, and melting into her eyes when she read to me privately during the Worcestershire Literary Festival & Fringe’s ‘Poetry Salon’.  To have a copy of Nina’s perfectly penned pages, is wonderful.  Inspiring.

Her Majesty The Queen Has A Copy


Her Majesty, The Queen received her copy of Lacuna.

Have you got yours?  Lacuna, the debut collection of poetry from yours truly (prize-winning poet, Kieran Davis, AKA Baldypoems) is available here:

Kieran Davis

Sure, you can get it on Amazon too, but I’d love for you to buy directly from the publisher, Black Pear Press.

Edited by the remarkable Polly Stretton, and sporting a blurb written by the legendary Paul F. Lenzi, Lacuna is sure to delight lovers of poetry.

Thank you to all for the continued support.
