Poems for Grenfell Tower
Ten months after the horrific fire at Grenfell Tower in west London, which killed at least 72 people, dozens of families and individuals have yet to be rehoused. Others say their voices are still not being heard.
On the 14th of each month, survivors and campaigners hold a silent walk from Kensington Town Hall, ending under the Westway near the site of the charred building.
Grenfell is close to where I grew up and lived for more than 25 years. Like many people, I wrote a poem soon after the fire and it is among 50 or so to appear in a new fundraising anthology, published by Onslaught Press. Royalties will go to the Grenfell Foundation.
