The loafers

Before the reading LtoR: Penny Shuttle, me, Lorna Thorpe
Penny Shuttle, Lorna Thorpe and me read at Hall for Cornwall in Truro on Tuesday 1 October. The rain pelted down but the mikes were brilliant and later I had the chance to catch up with Sarah who I first met in Guildford in my 20s.

Lorna's poems crank up the energy, always, and I happened to be wearing loafers so she read her Top Rank poem, which I love.

Penny's always take me somewhere unexpected, even when I think I know where I am! Her poems are guaranteed to reach far down and remind me what matters.
