Book Review. Universal Credit by Mike Watts.

it was always 
cold radiators, 
bruised fruit, 
a worry for the rent. 

I like the dedication ‘to inspiration, in all its forms’

Mike Watts creates poetry in Universal Credit (Wild Pressed Books) from relationships, being anchored to the present in a low paid job, and not having much, with metaphors of being a millionaire or a bird taking flight, and the therapeutic nature of writing itself.

‘it can take a poem, 
just one good poem, 
to settle a storm, 
bring calm to the fury,’
