Poet DIANE AWERBUCK is off-the-wall on Thursday 1st March at A TOUCH OF MADNESS at 7.30pm (19h30)


Diane Awerbuck is a teacher, writer and reviewer. Her most recent novel is the high-brow horror, Home Remedies. As Frank Owen, she also writes apocalypse survival guides with Alex Latimer: their novel North is due out in December. She is currently working on a short story collection about sex and death - in that order. 


Amongst other forms, Diane is into haiku. I hope she'll bring copies for you to buy.


Here's an example.


Taste

She was halved, and found

the star inside the apple.
No one thanks the snake.

Featherweight


Heaven is highly organised: 

The angel belt is closest to earth.
You teach me the first names
of the cherubim and seraphim,
of everything high and low.
Now there is a thin coating of your saliva between
this world and the next:
everything blessed;
everything charged.
