Reading of Unsettled in Suburbia

Just a video of me reading my poem “Unsettled in Suburbia” 🙂

Here’s a link to the original post:

Hope you enjoy 🙂 – it was my first time reading on camera – I’m sure I’ll improve with practice.

Also, sorry about the slight buzzing noise, I guess it’s my laptop’s microphone or something.



Unsettled in suburbia

needle striped houses

and polka dot trees

servile tulips that bend at the knees in

hanging basket greeting

of a queen so rarely seen

except for every day after 5

and weekends

and mornings

candy striped husbands

marshmallow motors

kids that skip unpleasantly

chipper to school

neighbours who swing

in Whoville unseen

grassy assed teenagers

stupidly keen on Ricky for some reason

with his sleeves a different colour than his jersey

and that jock swag of a chin too large

and an eye in perpetual wink
