Weeds grow where they want to; not where they're told to...

Angela Keaton

It's simply impossible to do justice to Keaton's creative genius on these web pages. For her, poetry is a visual feast created to make the mouth water. We STRONGLY advise you to sample the most original gourmet poems you've ever tasted!

 

sure it’s a wonderful place

 

bare midriffs should not be shown

as snake slithers down mountain

 

bride kisses him not her husband

metal glints in sun  baby has no arms

 

pigeons on parade in rainbow clouded paradise

 shot in the pulpit  hand clutching rosary

 

pavements weep birds sing

men argue  then mumble intimidation

 

fishing rod seems inappropriate

flames licked charred rafters

 

pink tongues circle sensuously

yellow ribbon quake  splits earth

 

pointed toes curl

 star-pocked by bullets

 

small fish smile tails uplifted

limestone polished to marble  over broken bridge

 

crane supports sky fashioned into trinkets

machine guns and cartridge cases

NOTE: This book is printed on extra-heavy A4 paper.

 

Angela Keaton has had installations exhibited at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, Lancashire, including demented retrospect (see page version) a work that had its Genesis in the sighting of a group of hot air balloons drifting over a university campus during a Creative Writing Conference, the co-location was too tempting an opportunity to miss. Lacking the finance to have her texts inscribed onto similar balloons, smaller helium versions were substituted and allowed to drift over the heads of the audience during a poetry reading in the university’s Rose Theatre.

 

The influences on her writing are evident in her work; amongst others, traces of Oulipo, the Language poets and Zen can be discovered but she makes of them something that differs from any and is distinctly her own. She speculates upon what it is possible to do with ‘language’ using that term in the widest sense and then does what is not, she experiments with the visual, sonic, textual and installation. For her poetry is not just about marks on paper it is a total sensory experience.

 

She has no intention in advance of writing a particular poem, it is only in retrospect that she discovers what she has created and can then share it with a ‘reader’ or spectator and allow them to interpret it as they will. Each work is a speculation on how her future poetry could be written, and perhaps, why?
