fran-bc-optomize2Swimming with Endorphins Fran Isherwood first poetry collection will take you on a wry, awry, word-playful gallop through the vagaries of life encountering a motley cast of mail stealing snails, 70s comedy legends, explosive bakers and baritones- turned -butchers en route. She is a regular on the London Spoken Word circuit who hosts a monthly event in East London but also has previous form as a singer, comic and actor. Fran has had poems published in several anthologies and a couple of periodicals. This is her first collection of poems.

                                                                            Garden As Circus

                                                              Windy Autumn day, overgrown lawn stands

diagonally on end like teenage pop star’s haircut.

In dancing tree, a blackbird snaffles precious,

remaining orange berries in yellow beak,

balancing, fluttering, almost falling off fragile

branch that flutters in its turn, intermittently

tickling the washing line. I stare and silently dare

the blackbird (let’s call him Cedric) to tightrope-walk

along the washing line. Alas, he refuses.

Chicken. Not as if it would matter if he fell.

No skin off his beak.
