EDINBURGH FESTIVAL 97

In the third of an occasional series of poems, John Hegley takes the Edinburgh pulse

Voodoo Tattoo Chapter Two

She's pinned Jimi Hendrix to

the wall

So she doesn't feel totally

alone there.

They've now got an air

conditioning unit

in her pocket size venue,

unfortunately it

means she has to do

without any audience.

I said it was the same

as when I did a benefit show

and they only had one socket

and no adaptor:

You could have lights OR

sound.

She said it wasn't the same at

all.

Today she will be at the

Mound

leafletting

blank paper.

John Hegley is at Venue 15, Traverse, nightly to Sunday (0131-228 1404)
