This week another rollicking poem about illness, before we turn to a delicious anticipation of moving in together. I would never have imagined that having a skin cancer would bring out the surreal, the joker, to empower a profound and joyful affirmation of life. But this is what ‘The Harrowing of the Squamous Cell Carcinoma’ does; and it was love that enabled me to confront what might have been a tragedy, and to try on a series of extravagant role-changes before a moment of transcendent celebration, almost accidentally. Filmed simply in bluebell light: the kaleidoscope is in the poem.
