Why are you a poet?
I have always loved playing around with words. I didn’t know it was called poetry. I was just an innocent kid messing around with words when an adult said ‘You’re a poet, be published or be damned’.
What poets do you admire?
Poets I like are Shelley, KRS-One, Carol Ann Duffy, Jean Breeze, Spike Milligan and the greatest living poet in the world, Tony Harrison.
What inspires you?
Freedom fighters like Marcus Garvey, Tony Benn, Nelson Mandela,
