From The Poets Mouth is a podcast all about poetry and the construction of poetry, straight from the poets mouth. I (your host, Abi Cook) deep dives into why the poet wrote the poem in the first place, and deconstructs every little piece. Be not afraid if you're not a poetry fan, this will give you a whole new appreciation for the amazing art form.
This week on From the Poets Mouth I am joined by Amani Saeed, a stunning spoken word poet who takes us on a journey through diaspora, racism and the feeling of being rootless. You can follow Amani on Instagram and Twitter @amanithepoet and buy her book "Split" from Burning Eye Books.
This episode I speak to the phenomenal Tane Stevens about his poem 'What Happened to the Men who Lived in the Water Towers Just off of Route 66'. We discuss lore, mythology, Fallen London and masculinity. An absolutely fascinating, must listen to episode.
