Southeastern: A Place for Poetry

At the end of 2015, Southeastern began to print my poem posters and distribute them to other stations on the line, as well as Greenwich. They devised the frame — A Place for Poetry– which is part of their campaign to support arts activities happening in and around stations (“A Place for…”).

The first poem poster they printed and distributed, “24 Hours”, is online here:

Currently, a poster featuring the poem “What is a ‘V’ but an unfinished triangle?” (shortlisted for the Live Canon poetry competition in 2015) is on display in six stations — Westcombe Park, Greenwich, Deptford, New Cross, Lewisham and Blackheath.

Here’s how they look in situ.
