I think it best when a poet has something about them. Michael Hofmann for example wrote poems the shape and texture of bricks. Ted Hughes saw a monster in the river in childhood. David Morley had a project on water's effect on water closed down. I myself - well, I could say, but I would be giving the game away. Someone found out what happened to me as a child, a fellow poet, and said I should try and get through a whole lot of work without mentioning it. So that is the game I am playing right now - not mentioning something truly remarkable that happened to me in my childhood.
