Brian Bilston - Days Like These.

undefined

Brian Bilston is clouded in the pipe smoke of mystery. He has been described as the Banksy of poetry and Twitter’s unofficial Poet Laureate. With over 50,000 followers, numbering J. K. Rowling, Roger McGough and Frank Cottrell Boyce amongst many other luminaries, Brian has become truly beloved by the Twitter community. His new collection of 365 poems, Bilston attempts to shake off the temporal shackles of the Gregorian calendar by sharing a strange event that happened on each day, across time and place. Some events are well-known,others not so much: the January day in 1902 on which New York banned public flirting, or October’s ‘Apple Day’ when people gathered from across the land to celebrate the ubiquitous fruit. They’re all followed by a poem written in response. A brilliant, original way to celebrate every day of the year.
