Poet crush

I discovered Hollie McNish today, and I have another poet crush a-brewin'.  I could listen to her talk poetry to me with her audible smirk for hours.  Days.  Years.  I want to listen to McNish for years on repeat.  She's got a particular way of inflection in spoken poetry that I always crave and adore to hear.  I can hear her smile, frown, sigh.  "A British National Breakfast" speaks sobering volumes.

Her motherhood poetry is stunning too (I adore it, and I'm not even a mum).

From her site: "Download for free or donate what you feel. Any money given for this album will be donated to SOS Children's Villages:, helping orphaned children worldwide. Thank you to everyone who has already given. The album has already raised £500 for the previous charity supported:, educating girls worldwide."


  1. Hi,
