Q – I was listening to “Missing” recently, and I must say I quite enjoy it. “Last seen heading north with no visible scars” is a particularly brilliant line. If I recall correctly, you based this song on another poet’s work. Who is that poet, and what poem is it? I would enjoy comparing your take on it to the original.
A – Alan Jenkins is the poet. I cannot recall the title of the poem, maybe it was ‘Missing’. Some of the lines were taken almost verbatim from his poem, but that one is mine.
