The place where I grew up has turned to shit. 

It was so smart and clean. 

So suburban and green. 

Now it's busy and confusing and noisy and dirty, 

Full of emptiness and mourning and sorrow and fear....

After a long decade of ignoring the written word, Simon Zec found himself in a quiet space the day after a friend’s funeral. He sat watching the Downs, where he lives, and – to his surprise – a poem came out. Then a few more. From there the words just flooded out. Hooking up with the Raz-up folk at the Norfolk Arms in his home town of Steyning, Simon is now established as a Sussex-based performance poet. Angry, nostalgic and elegaic, this is his first published book.
