“I was born in Sunderland but have lived in W10 for over thirty years. I’m a walking tours guide in London and was for many years a teacher of English to people from overseas. I’ve been writing poetry for a very long time and my latest volume is ‘A, Meet B in a Dandelion Lake’, which contains fifty illustrated poems about nature during the Covid pandemic. I came across Kamitan Arts by doing a Google search as I thought there’d be an organization or two publishing local poetry.” – Ian Mole
Grenfell Tower: 14th June 2017 It’s a lovely summer’s day but smoke is gushing upwards about a mile away and the block hovers like a stark sentinel at the gates of hell. This sunny morning smells. Each burnt plastic breath bears black tidings of death.
Grenfell Tower: 16th June 2017 A concrete skeleton is blackening the horizon and hoarding its sooty secrets as the missing remain missing and the repercussions sizzle together with regrets.
Grenfell Tower: 27th June 2017 A blackened skull with a hundred eyes stares out blindly over Latimer skies. Death’s dust in its brain. This can’t happen again and justice is coming through the anger and pain.
