Bland On Bland – Closing your eyes

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Closing your eyes“.

Well, this is JVG really rolling the obscure theme dice again this week.

Some times you have to wonder where he comes up with them. But it does make you dig deep for an idea.

Well normally it would, but I had one idea percolating around that just happened to fit the theme, what are the odds?

No Ed this week, but have a listen to how it went below…

A great theme this week, jvg AND i discussed the long history of protest music and the recent resurgence of songs that are challenging the existing structures.

One of those topics worth revisiting again

A combined poem and prose piece was my eventual response to this weeks theme.

Its very curious

Bland On Bland – Timing

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “Timing“.

Timing. Good one JVG. Found the irony button again I see. I am reminded of the old joke, “whats that whistling sound I keep hearing? tinnitus? No deadlines as they go sailing past.

But I digress. I did find enough time to write a bit of fun this week. Hope you enjoy it.

A good show this week, and a theme that gave me a chance to finish off a story that I started writing some time back.

So for those of you sitting there going “hang on that’s, not a poem”

Well spotted. You’re right

But I did enjoy writing and performing it …
