The Ballad of Chris and Anne's Fish Bar; The Deadline

Verse Illustrated Episode 2 of 4

In the second of the series of illustrated poems, spoken word artists Luke Wright and Zena Edwards tell two very different stories.

'The Ballad of Chris and Anne's Fish Bar' written and performed by Luke Wright
A tragic love story set in a chip shop: "He'd banter with the customers, as she dipped cod in batter, and though their profits were quite slim, it didn't really matter."

'The Deadline' written and performed by Zena Edwards
A deadline induced journey through an idyllic dream: "The seas shushes its way up and down the shore, pushing and pulling its liquid love along the lip of the yellow-white sands."
