I only really started writing poetry properly about 3 years ago. It was all a misunderstanding. A friend asked me to read some of my poetry at a magazine launch evening. And I forgot to say no. So I ended up having to write enough poems to fill a 20 minute set.

And then I was bitten by the bug.

Since then I must have written over 500 poems. Sounds a lot - but most of them are very short. My shortest poem so far is 8 letters. And I still think it's a bit flabby.

I write under a couple of different identities as well as under my own name. These are:

Best Poem of Dave Birss

Supposéd poet

I’m supposed to be a poet
But the words come so slow it
Just puts me to shame.
Should I give up this game
And just stay in my bed?
Or try crochet instead?
Someone wake up my muse –
She keeps missing her cues
And my pen’s full of ink
And I’m left on the brink
In a torturous fight
With a page that’s too white.
