Paul Tanner – snivelling in the literal shadow of the muse

snivelling in the literal shadow of the muse

spending this
sunny day
indoors
so I can sit here
telling you about it
gives me
a perverse joy
I could never
put into words.

Paul Tanner has been earning minimum wage, and writing about it, for 15 years now. No, really. Shortlisted for the Erbacce 2020 Poetry Prize. Latest collection ‘Shop Talk: Poems for Shop Workers’ published by Penniless Press last year.
