Tom Calvard - Speak Easy 23/02/10

Following Rachel we have Tom Calvard with two poems which pick up the pace and cheer up the place. As Owen reminded us, its only a week after Valentines Day, and Tom reads us our second love poem of the night although this isnt romantic love. That doesnt stop it being really really soppy. Toms poem highlights the connection shared between siblings, and focuses on the more positive side of the relationship between brothers and sisters its really rather sweet.

The second poem Tom has for us is called Sheffield Morning Jogger a very light hearted affair, and again a poem with undertones of love. Accurately but poetically depicting people throwing up outside one of Sheffields many vomit inducing grease bars is no easy feat whats even harder is making us go aww while its done. This is what real love is like, the poem seems to say, and its all the more pleasant for it.
