POETIKA 57 – Sex, Sexuality & Gender

When we asked you to decide on this month’s theme, we were mildly surprised that last month’s audience were unanimously in favour of SEX…

OK that’s a great soundbite, but the real topic – sex, sexuality and gender – is a perfect prompt for a range of work and styles –  the world we know is created by ourselves, and we are created by… sex, sexuality and gender… so the world is your oyster for inspiration.

So bring along your new work or previous work on this theme – or any theme – and we’ll be delighted to hear your contributions as sexy or prudish as you like – we’re artists, so no holds barred!

Because of the theme we’ve chosen our sexiest member, Ria to host – so come along on Wednesday 18th July, 7.30 for 7.45, upstairs at The Pheasant, Salt lane, Salisbury. We ask a contribution of £2-3pp please towards expenses.

As usual we welcome everyone who wants to read or sing their own work or that of others as well as those people who prefer only to listen.

Not written by a member, but a sweet poem by e.e. cummings

xvii.

Lady,i will touch you with my mind.
Touch you and touch and touch
until you give
me suddenly a smile,shyly obscene

(lady i will
touch you with my mind.)Touch
you,that is all,

lightly and you utterly will become
with infinite ease

the poem which i do not write.

All the best, Ria, Nicky, John and Dave
