Some Things by Hannah Newell




The thing I love about coffee is its blackness

The thing I hate about polystyrene is its sound

The thing I hate about lentils is their powdereyness

The thing I love about cigarettes is the standing outside

The thing I hate about kindle is the not reading it in the bath

The thing I love about mum is her soup

The thing I hate about mum is her gravy

The thing I love about duplo is its bigness

The thing I hate about politics it its tribalism

The thing I hate about Spurs is everything

The thing I love about love is its tiny hair clips



Hannah Newell (she/her) is a poet from Herne Bay. She studied Creative Writing at the University of Kent and writes when she's not busy looking after her two young children; Maddie and Roz.
