Other comments on Mick Guffan's poetry:

"If art is required to disturb the comfortable and comfort the disturbed then [Inner London Buddha] succeeds beyond expectation."
Never Imitate

"Bent for the Job is a warm evening. I recommend sitting by an open window, or better yet in your garden if you have one. Pour yourself a drink. Keep the bottle on the table (because you’ll want more than one)."
