Tim Holmes is a walking talking contradiction; my goddess can he talk. He’s also a poet, for the last seventeen years he’s travelled in the guise of the Buddhist Punk. Having produced a one man show: The Sub Verse Meditations of a Buddhist Punk, performed at literary & music festivals (Off the Shelf, Ledbury, Shambala, Wychwood) and opened for artists such as American polit punks Anti Flag and the Reggae Philharmonic Orchestra, his preferred approach is now guerrilla performance; unsolicited renditions to unsuspecting audiences, outside the party, ideally by the fireside.
Newton’s First Law of Poetry
As gravity takes hold once more
And every action reacts with its equal and opposite number
I awake from my slumber and type
That which is captive attempts to break free
That which is free I attempt to capture on the page
From then to now. The why? The how?
And every thing has an equal and opposite everything
A body will remain still unless acted upon by an external force
Or of course, an internal force
My art beats
I ‘m moved from within
I’ve destroyed a blank page
And created a work of heart.
