‘The Baby’, 7/11/2013

Reading The Baby at the Soap Box Open Mic at Pleasance Cabaret bar, 7th November 2013.

The theme was ‘Fear and Strength’; I tried to write something for it, but bar a rather crudely-etched stanza of something that didn’t speak honestly for me, I had nothing. So I thought to myself, ‘Fuck the theme’, and read The Baby. Which promptly ended up fitting the theme, somehow. How convenient.

People get quite amused by my use of a laptop at open mics, where I put all my finished stuff after drafting it. I don’t always refer directly to it but I have it on me just in case I forget something. I’m quite new to having a laptop at all and, it being my new toy, I use wherever I can like an annoying, technologically-backward child.
