This is Ian, reciting one of his poems.  I saw Ian watching the Naqshbandia parade on Sunday, he was still there as I walked back to my car afterwards, so I stopped for a chat.  Ian writes poems, poems about schizophrenia, living rough and life in a psychiatric hospital, so he hasn't had an easy life.  The poems were very powerful, spoken from the heart, and well delivered by Ian, I was impressed.


  1. A good portait of one of society's outsiders.

  2. I hope the poetry works for him and makes him stronger. a fine portrait it is.
