The world is full of eggs and rabbits. Fertility abounds. Spring is sprung in the North. Bring on the original celebration, a pagan festival of fucking. (Sorry, my Christian friends, but we were here first.)

Here is my favourite Easter poem. Eostra by Kiersty Boon (from her book which you should own, The Poet Busker).

And in more good news, Brad (of Maekitso’s Cafe fame) arrives today for a visit. It will be the first time we’ve met in person and we shall be experimenting with the video camera, so look out for some video poetry performance madness soon.

Happy Easter,

  1. Wasn’t it Australians who experimented with a video camera and… no, I’m not going to give you any ideas. Have a lovely weekend both of you. I expect the sun to shine rather than the moon, heheh. (And glad you like the poem Paul, thank you.

  2. That sounds like trouble with a capital t but lots of fun and I can’t wait for the video (touch wood). Wish I was there – boohoohoo!

  3. Gotta love those pagan festivals. Happy Easter, Paul!

  4. Happy Easter!

  5. How wonderful…tell Brad I’m jealous.

    Happy Easter!!

  6. Happy Easter!

  7. Happy (pagan) Easter. You can never have too many bunnies and they seem to know the true, as you tell it, pagan meaning of the festivities. As do the birds in the northern hemisphere

  8. happy easter you too.

    forgive me for saying so but the idea of you two meeting for the first time and filming poetry madness I find kind of boggling as a concept. I’ve always pictured poetry making as a quiet, solitary, monklike activity…poets running amok seems to me like serious zen practicants meeting for a meditation orgy…but I’ll be v happy to discover the result!

  9. thinking twice about what i just wrote, I did not long ago watch the film “Total Ecslipse” with whatshisname..DeCaprio, and the wonderful David Thewlis about Paul Verlaine and Rimbaud’s debauched capers…I should know better…

  10. yeah, tell Brad I’m jealous too. Happy Easter to you too- sounds like you both are going to have lots of fun!

  11. PS Guess what I just got some poems published too- it looks like you opened up a floodgate for your online friends, Paul!

  12. Enjoy the madness Easter brings… and please, do share!

  13. aha…that explains the rabbits…and maybe some eggs too?it is just more subtle-you know this concept of resurrection can be carried at different levels.I will be looking for the video performance…

  14. I love the video. I’ve been chopping in the brush a few days…spring cleaning outdoors so to speak…planted a bit of a garden…my celebration of Easter. Someone stole my dog. I’m very upset over that, wish I could find the bastard that took him, I’d give him something to remember me by. Great to hear you and see you on the screen. You should have your own show. Cheers my friend, F.G.
