zimZalla at the Hardy Tree

In approaching five years of existence, zimZalla has now published 25 objects. To mark this, there will be an exhibition of all of the objects so far at the Hardy Tree gallery near King’s Cross in London, running from 18th – 30th October. In collaboration with SJ Fowler’s Enemies project, there will be two events during this time, the, first also featuring writers from The Red Ceilings press, on the evening of the 18th and a second event on the 27th.

Endless / Nameless ~ Rachel Sills & Richard Barrett

The gingerbread silhouette of my father
Is absent today I’m perspiring
Or you could say shimmering over a coastline
In a row pegged-out, colour coded
Three weeks’ worth of hearts
A Freudian couch with sponge cake perhaps?
An arrow, a narrowboat, arrowroot blot
A stair-lift stops, temperamentally
I decline to use the honesty box
But am generous for life-guards
On a good day, only on a good day
A magazine before dinner before, later, the paper
The evening smell of tobacco
‘Papa?’  I hear; to which I answer ‘yes, Nicole?’
