'An Army of Flakes and Chancers'

I really enjoyed reading Sophia Blackwell's 'Confessions of a Performance Poet' over at Time Out. What really struck me was her love for literature, and that came across more than her job as a publisher or author (both titles she admits she shies away from).

Sophia's experiences are similar to my own. I particularly like her description of the people she associates with through her art: 'an army of flakes and chancers'. That seems to me the title of a poem.

I'm suddenly inspired to go write!
