Poem for the day!
Billy Childish...a bit of a hero to me cos I love his atitude towards Ameteurism!! As a value system, amateurism elevates things done with self-interest or for their own intrinsic value above those done for pay. Can be applied to music, bike building and art!
Childish is a confessional poet and has published over 40 collections of his work and favourite of his is the poem called The Bitter Cup...
and there’s no sea deeper than the piss of the bottle
and none speaks the truth like a drunk
whiskey runs through me like a sorrowful river
I’m down on my knees and I’m sunk
