I'm taking part in a benefit gig for Cancer UK in the Copper Room at Warwick University tonight. It's organised by my friend Fatima, who is from Kuwait. I think she's got a Palestinian poet on the bill, and someone reading Arabic poetry in translation. I missed the rehearsal, and I haven't decided what I'm going to read yet. I'm utterly unprepared. However, I think it will be all right on the night. I'll post tomorrow about how it went.
