P J Harvey reads Don’s poem

An unexpected event – well, I didn’t see any adverts for it – was PJ Harvey’s appearance at Don’s art exhibition, Standing on One Hand,  in London between November 2023 and February 2024.

Polly read several of Don’s poems. Does anyone know which ones?

She finished her set with a poem, Man Can’t Anticipate Cat, that Don had written especially for her about her cat called ‘Garden’. Polly and Don often spoke on the phone and she sent Don some photos of her with her cat. Don loved cats.

A recording of the poem is available on YouTube :
