Poem by Neil Fulwood (UK)
Published in The Ofi Press issue 41
Labouring in low gear
Neil Fulwood was born in Nottingham in 1972, the son of a truck driver, the grandson of a miner. He was admonished at all early age that there’s no money in poetry, and is regretfully coming to accept this opinion as accurate. Neil is a member of the Alan Sillitoe Committee, a group who are raising funds towards a permanent memorial to Alan to be sited in Nottingham; he co-designed their website www.sillitoe.com. Neil’s interests include visiting inns and taverns of architectural interest. Some of his friends and family still confuse this with pub-crawling.
