THE CHAINS BY LUKE WRIGHT ft. LORA STIMSON

Poet Luke Wright has long been an inspiration to this writer's own poetic ambitions. So it is with extra delight that we feature one of his works here.
The poem here is called On Revisiting John Betjeman's Grave, but repurposed as The Chains - catchier, less of a mouthful - and laid over a langorous electronic beat and augmented with vocals from Lora Stimson to take it to a totally new level, Stimson's soaring voice at odds with Wright's Essex tones.

Wright is touring his show What I Learned From Johnny Bevan all over the country this autumn and winter. For dates, see his website and follow him @lukewrightpoet
