In the 1990s, the late, great Bradford College put on a series of Bad Poetry Nights for their beleaguered student writers. These fast-paced evenings of literary shenanigans had one simple premise: compose the worst possible poem you could in five minutes or less, using 3-5 absurd words plucked from a hat by the hosts.

The only trouble was this: give a talented writer a set of clear constraints, no matter how ridiculous, and they can’t help but produce something compelling.

It is in that spirit that E. Christopher Clark (Bradford’s Class of 1999), traditionally an author of novels and short fiction, presents his first collection of verse.
