Kevin writes:

“I was born in the city of Liverpool on 6th January 1969. Having attended The Royal School for the Blind and St. Vincent’s School for the Blind in Liverpool, I went on to read History and Politics at the University College of Swansea.
Having graduated with a BA (Joint Honours), and an MA in Political Theory, I moved to London where I now live and work.
Being visually impaired, I use screen reading software called Job Access with Speech (JAWS) which converts text into speech and braille, enabling me to use a Windows laptop.

Much of my poetry is written in my home, which overlooks a historic park in Upper Norwood/Crystal Palace, a suburb of Greater London.”

Geranium

On Good Friday I gave to you
A geranium in a pot.
We agreed on the need for air.
I know not
Whether you are showing care
To that token
Which, although unspoken
You knew to be true.

And now you have your air
And I mine.
I remember you
On my sofa blue.
No line
Was crossed.

The cost
Was a cheap
Priceless geranium in a pot
You may or may not, keep.
