Recording made at the festival in 2010.
Rotterdam is an excellent festival, very well organised. All festivals whirl by at great pace, then seem to vanish into the air of the past. but of course that is what the past does, so this little film preserves something of it. I remember sitting in the white sofa, answering questions, then shifting around forthe poem. About twenty minutes in the studio, one of a number of poets making their visits according to schedule.
I seem to have lost a little weight around the face since then. The hair's a little greyer too.
