The Hospice, Christmas 2010

image for story The Hospice, Christmas 2010

Not for the first time, I've added the music to a poem by the writer Jason Lewis. He's building something, and I am thrilled to be part of it. 

The Hospice, Christmas 2010 is an epilogue, caught in a downdraft. It's our serious attempt at an annual Christmas hit, like a DIckensian ghost story. Without the joy.

Jason is brilliant - he records his poems on his phone and emails them across the road with explicit instructions I am unable to respond to since, since the very beginning I have never been able to do whatever is asked of me. Somehow, together, we've ended up with this beautiful low-fi melange.

Here's the video which is all him.
