npower Ashes Poetry 2009

Hi, just to give you a taste of npower Ashes Poetry 2009.

From Wednesday 8th July I'll be at Cardiff, Lords', Edgbaston, Headingley and Oval to chronicle the series.

About the same as last time, a poem a day, but with a shorter prefacial talk/blog (due to broadcasting constraints with the time-zones working against me while in England instead of Australia) should be powered by a application which will give a much better performance - ease of accessing old scores (if not settling them!) .... newsletter ... starting up this June with Cellophane, the first poem of the series

If you want to know more (a three page digest in Word of the plan ahead,with a bonus poem commissioned by BBC Radio 5Live about Darren Gough on its last page) please come back to me on

Dr Fiffle-Faffle predicts Lord Mandelson will not have taken over Lords' by the end of the series but it could be a damned close-run thing.
