In January 2014 I asked for £24 to write a poem. I raised the money. I wrote a poem. We shall call this poem ‘Poem A’. On 24th February this poem was published in a book. In March I decided to write another poem. Exploring notions of value and relationships (and the value of relationships - not to mention the relationship of values) the second poem was pitched at £5. I raised some more money. I wrote another poem. It will be published in a book on 5th of May. We shall call this poem ‘Poem B’. 

And so it goes and so it goes. The video shows this writer's progress: moving from point A, or ‘Poem A’ to point B, or ‘Poem B’ - essentially in a straight line. 

I have decided that departure is required.

I intend to embark on the notoriously difficult 3rd poem. Once funded I will write 3 drafts in 3 days and publish the 3rd draft on the 3rd day. I want £3.

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.
