Her poem, ‘Diary’, is currently on London tube trains. The poem is from her first collection, The Girl with the Cactus Handshake.

  1. I really loved this poem. I’ve normally got my head in a paper or my phone on the tube, but looked up the other day and there it was. Thank you!

  2. I’m an English teacher and saw this on the tube – I immediately loved it and am on here as I took a note to check this poem out further. I’m going to use this as an ‘unseen poem’ with my year 11s to see what they think of it. I know they’ll love it!
