Penny’s Poem

…i’ve boxed up my typewriter to focus on writing creatively in corporate spaces but for friends who are basically family i’m still whippin up the odd poem… aisha asked me for help celebrating her bestie – here’s a snapshot of the brief she sent me, which i then had the absolute pleasure of turning into a pretty piece of *printed* birthday poetry:
“my best friend since we were 14, she’s more like my sister than my friend we’ve been through everything together; so many crazy moments and we always look after each other. we’re open and honest with each other – nothing is ever too fucked up for the other to understand!! i love her more than I can put in to words…”
