Spooky stuff snapped and collaged in East London by Mitch Hicks
I remember looking at all those old photos in bygone travel books
Never did I think that one day I would snap some of my own
Inside atmospheric buildings to streets steeped in history
Views from castles and shop windows that intrigue
I leave you in Kamnik with snippets to enjoy!
Snaps & thoughts from the Slovenian town of Kamnik by Mitch Hicks
Sod it!… Bloody hell!!!!
Lots more swear words # ***&***~~~~#+###
Remember the day yes remember
Poets need more than one efffffffing day a year
Remember that as you grab the last loo paper from the wall
I write not to order but like when the need is toooooo much to keep in
Again we are back in the loo
I don’t want to write deep down in a coal mine or as a monster
But thoughts of a lusty woman in a hat and I’m all ink…
Poem and collage made from snaps I took in Berkhampstead today 2nd October (National Poetry Day). Rummaging around the town I found unsigned art, unloved in dusty old shops waiting for my camera to add life once more. Yet it was sad not to take any home. But their spirit now captured alive for ever more ….. Mitch

Snaps taken 7th August by Mitch Hicks
I want to write a symphony but I can’t write music
Maybe I can do it on camera
Layers yes layers of sound I lay down in snaps
No strings just walls, a tap above an unseen sink
From Hackney Wick the score is shot
I thank the Wick for a welcome chance to write my symphony
Music… a collage and that sounds good to me
