The Poetry Show & Stairwell Books Presents…

On Monday at 1pm, The Poetry Show talks about FEAR followed by Stairwell Books Presents: Becca Miles

The Poetry Show Season One episode is on FEAR, which features Laurence O’Reilly and guest Neil Cathan. After that, Alan will sit down with Becca Miles, SWB editorial assistant and LARP expert. What is LARP, you ask? Tune in and find out! Or are you afraid…..?

The Poetry Show Season One Episode 26: Today’s show is about FEAR.

What makes you frightened? What IS ‘FEAR’? I once heard someone say “people lie when they’re afraid,” so before you lie, ask yourself: what am I scared of? Okay, maybe.

I have felt fear: walking down a street at night. Walking through a parking lot at night. Stairwells in big, emptyish buildings, at day OR at night. In fact I’ll do a poem (an old one) on the very certain, specific fears, that women can have. I once had a personal tragedy and so, I was left even MORE afraid after it. You’d think the worst has happened, and yet I actually was more fearful of it happening again, afterward.

Fear can be healthy: we are aware of our surroundings; we’re being careful. Every soldier is scared shitless, or they’re dead…. do you agree? Okay: Is fear GOOD? Should we have fear? Isn’t keeping an eye out for the sabre tooth tiger just part of being human?
