Sadly we’ve said goodbye to David Merritt, who has driven off in his 1964 Landrover to take poetry to new corners of our country. Thanks for the inspiration to take up a pen or a computer and write down some words. “Just start with a list,” is his advice to budding poets. Here’s David performing his poem “Nice things,” at his wonderful performance at Wanaka Wastebusters during the Outspoken Festival.
