Experimenting with words and my new passion- Poetry.

I have actually discovered a poet I identify with- Fernando Pessoa- the guy would have been a total hippy, had you stuck him in the 80's- Post punk England , traveller chill, in search of spiritual sth- Johnathon Livingstone Seagull and Vera Stanley Alder were my guides.

The Party .

What do you do? (What a lame question my eyes scream.)
Are you an artist?
I don't call myself anything
Other people do.

So you need a definition of me,
So you can put me and slot me.
Or does it feel safer to know,
Who you think I am?

(Gerry Aldridge 2015)
