A Cup of Teeth by Nick Degg
A Cup of Teeth is Nick Degg's debut Poetry Collection.
This book is a bit of a mixed bag of poems; some long, some short, some funny and some sensible.
Its also about 9mm thick should you wish to steady a wonky table.
Nick Degg is a Potteries Poet, who crafts words with the dexterity of a sausage knotter.
Indeed it has been said that some of his poems actually taste of pork. He was in punk and indie bands in his youth, and edited a football fanzine throughout the ‘90s. He always continued to write short stories, snippets and bits of poetry. In 2015, he entered his first poetry slam, which was a revelation, as it brought back the thrill of being on stage, without the need to cart loads of equipment about! Nick loves performing to a live audience in alternative arenas. He performs at regular poetry events and slams, and at schools, colleges, libraries, at football matches, comedy clubs, festivals, radio stations and even at an auction with Eric Knowles off the telly. Nick regularly supports rock bands.
