Words are strange creatures. Handle them right and they can bite deep,
move to tears, last a lifetime and paint better pictures in your mind
than the finest Old Masters. Best of all they can convey ideas, moving
the heart to thought and action. To me the best 'word-shepherds' of all
are the poets.
Julien Crispin is a new word-shepherd. A modern 'street poet' who loves
to look inside as well as out. He gathers his words from 'the
everyday', harvesting them from billboards and bus queues, pavements
and pop tunes, reflections and relationships. He is a poet with ideas
as well as opinions, with acute observations and a quirky sense of
humour... and, oh yes, he likes to provoke.
Julien Crispin bends his words to do his bidding and sends them straight to the readers heart and brain. I'm glad he does.
