The launch of David Hart's The Titanic Cafe Closes Its Doors And Hits The Rocks, or Knife, fork and bulldozer ultra modern retail outlet complex development scenario with flowers.

Published by Nine Arches Press as part of their new mini-pamphlet series, The Titanic CafĂ© closes its doors and hits the rocks will also include a selection of colour photographs taken by David Hart on location to accompany the poem (plus other surprising and geographical additions you don't normally find in a poetry pamphlet!). This vivid and dynamic sequence is a fitting swansong to a city’s lost landmarks, the vanishing and shape-shifting human geographies of the heartlands.

Readings from a selection of Birmingham's best poets: Simon Turner, Myra Connell, Matt Nunn and David Hart.
