My Hour 12 poem—and that’s a wrap. The prompt was to do an erasure poem, so I went to the photograph I’d taken a few weeks back of p. 143 from Cosey Fanni Tutti’s art sex music (Faber & Faber, 2017):
We forged on—
artists, poets and musicians
He was wild
dangerous and uncompromising
I was stuck at a local factory
for quite a while
I’d been practising
and felt pretty good about my organ
It was coming along
for an arduous journey
I loved fun
Any hitches were
never a problem
He’d just smile
