My poem Palm Tree Victory is published today in excellent company in London Grip’s New Poetry Section, Winter 2019/2020. Many thanks go to Anne-Marie Fyfe. Anne-Marie is from County Antrim, Northern Ireland and runs wonderful workshops above the Troubadour in Earl’s Court, London.
A while back the first draft of this poem fell onto my pages at a workshop of hers, in spite of my fears that I couldn’t write in front of other people. This summer, I found it, gave it a rub down and a polish up, and it’s become the version you can find here.
