Junk Talks

Calibna J. Kerr or the Junk Talk Poet, as he is most often referred to is one of the most socially observant, poets and authors writing today.

Most well known for his most recent work in poetry - 'Take This Pill' and 'A Cockroach's Tea Party' (Published by Burdizzo Bards.' The poet approaches controversial social questions with a refreshing and stimulating outlook on the world, blending light and darkness with unpredictable bouncy alliterative rhythms.

Inspired by the working class city of Birmingham and neighbouring towns, the writer explores the boundaries of form and meter, "in a way that mimics the unpredictability of modern life making somewhat unexpected comparisons that create an infinite range of extraordinary images.

Along with the three poetry collections currently to his name, he has contributed to numerous poetry anthologies by: Nothing Books, Burdizzo Books and others, as well as various charity publications.

This second volume of socially analytical poems digs down beneath the very skin, unsettling the structure that has already been laid out, the sick order of it all.

A Cockroach's Tea Party identifies with the post-apocalyptic vision of a world disguised as a Utopia. The rhythmic shuffling of off-beat, alliterative verse brings a musical but narrative sense to the unorganised chaos that exists under the very nose.

Combining the industrial world with natural projections and visions escapes the conformist. You are cordially invited to the Cockroach's Tea Party.
