Alongside performing and more conventional publication in collections and magazines, Becci creates shorter bespoke collections of poems. She describes these as ‘poetry in pill form for an intellectual and emotional pick-me-up’. These collections are created entirely by the poet, including the cover design and book construction. They are sold at between £4-6 depending on cover design choice. When sold in person and at events, these come with a personalised poem to order.
This collection is a slightly unusual one. Rather than a collection of stand-alone poems, the pieces in ‘On Punishment Mountain’ make up a verse-narrative retelling of the myth of Prometheus. Intended as a political comment on the imbalance of power and wealth within the United Kingdom, this collection is an injection of courage into the veins of its readers, an attempt to draw us together to tackle the issues at hand, to listen to one another and to stand up for our beliefs.
The collection’s cover comes in a variety of colours and each is made to the specification of the buyer. You can find and purchase the collection here.
