The Poets Our Kin / These Poems Our Stories


Poem by Alfred Thananchayan. Originally from Sri Lanka, and calling Doncaster home for the last 4 years.

Doncaster is currently hosting the first ever poetry exhibition in a commercial shopping space in the UK, possibly even the world. It has been lovingly curated by Doncaster poet Dan Ryder. I am so very proud to be part of it. Doncaster is my home town and it fills my heart with joy to see great big community art projects happening for everyone to enjoy. See the photo below of my poem ‘Not So Bad’ up 10 feet high on the wall of the bus station in my home town. That’s my step dad there having a look at it. Good light, hey?
