More From Adrian Mitchell
- "Most people ignore most poetry because most poetry ignores most people."
- "I use rock and jazz and blues rhythms because I love that music. I hope my poetry has a relationship with good-time rock’n roll."
- "Stadium rock and commercial rock are the opposite of what poetry needs. An audience of around 200 is ideal for poetry."
