Of Departure Lounge 58:


“curiously bizarre, relaxed yet obsessive, reading this book is like tuning into a mutant ivor cutler/philip larkin crossbreed deciding what underwear to put on his head, and that entertains me. it’s like being exposed to a brain rather than just what it knows, and that interests me. fisk is bound to annoy those who need poetry to do set things in set ways. fuck ’em. fisk should keep doing what he’s doing. long live the fisk.” lloyd robson


“Surprising honesty from one of Cardiff’s most ubiquitous platform performers.  Departure Lounge 58 is a slice of live pop culture and shows here that the page is just as important as the stage.” Peter Finch


Enjopyable, engaging, entertaining poems from this off-the-wall,out-of-the-box, outside-the-lines poet.” Mab Jones
Departure Lounge 58 is a quiet, unassuming joy.” Chris Brooke
