On the 1st day of the 11th month of this year at 1pm I am going to publish another poem online and it will cost you £1 to read it.
I would like to have given it away for free this time but you can’t ask for nothing on Kickstarter. Is it possible to ask for nothing anywhere? Besides I’m back in London and I need to put a £1 coin into the electricity meter to keep the power running.
Yes it has come to this. The writer lives a primitive existence and does what he can to keep his head above water (see video). On this note, if you have been following the poems I have crowdfunded so far, you may have been aware of an aquatic element seeping into them. So expect more liquids, and the immersion there in, this time round.
The poem is currently below the surface. £1 will help float it. We'll see if it can crawl ashore on its own.
Risks and challenges
There are many risks involved in writing poetry. These include: 1) Prolonged bouts of melancholia. 2) Laudanum addiction. 3) Eventual madness. There is also every possibility that A) I will not finish the poem or B) the poem will be shit. In case A) the poem will be presented as an unfinished work. Case B) will probably result in one or a combination of the following: 1) Prolonged bouts of melancholia. 2) Laudanum addiction 3) Eventual madness.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
