"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Get your hard copy hardcore Poetry Bus now!!

After a long wait, the Poetry Bus mag is now out and I'm delighted to have a poem included in it, alongside some very established and internationally renowned poets.
And also on the bus's sometimes long and winding ramblings around the four corners of virtual earth, I've come to know a good number of not-so-established poets who religiously hop on and off every week. To be honest, many of these deserve greater recognition for their talents - some of the poetry that is produced on a weekly basis is just sublime and I'm delighted to be counted in as a fellow-traveller, even though my doggerel relies on a very loose definition of the word 'poetry.'.
Of course, there is one big flaw in the mag, as my fellow passengers would doubtless agree. The originator and most regular contributor to the bus, the driving force of the bus, the editor of the mag (and a fine beat poet to boot) Totalfeckineejit has decided out of some misguided modesty not to include one of his own masterpieces in the mag. I just hope peer pressure will cause him to rectify this decision for Issue 2.

And if you feel like hopping on the bus, this week's tickets can be purchased in downtown Lucan at its retail-and-pets-don't-mix office


  1. I did not realize that TFE has bowed out of his own magazine. C'est dommage! Peadar, why would you do such a thing? If anyone should be represented it is yourself.
    I join with Peter in stating that you must rectify this for the second issue. All in favour?


  2. Thanks Pete,that's most appreciated, really.You should have your copies in the morning post, I hope so, I can't wait for someone else to see it! I need feedback like a bicycle needs a wheel, or two.

    I really hope you like it, there are some really fine poems in there (including yours Pete)I want as many people as possible to read them.
    Couldn't put meself in Pete,Kato,this one or the next one (next one! My feckity I'm sweating already!) that would be so wrong! But thanks.

  3. I think Peadar should first up to bat!
