Wunderbar Lyttelton presents an evening of live poetry performance with local poet Andy Coyle.
Andy will deliver the highlights from his recent book ‘Ode to the Cyclist and other poems’ along with new poems and his poetry slam winning performances.

Andy Coyle is a narrative poet who relishes the opportunity to take an audience on a journey. From the rebel cyclist, to the lizard skinned junkie, from the old timer on Papanui Rd to the mad man on the bus, the poems are full of those colourful characters who occupy the margins.

Andy performs regularly at live venues, with jazz and folk musicians, at street festivals, literary festivals, poetry slam, and solo poetry shows.
He twice has represented Chch at the National Poetry Slam finals.

“The cyclist is a breath of fresh air in a world of pollution,
a free flowing verse in a world of congestion…
an endangered species
a childhood memory
a moment of faith
a constant rhythm
a secret song
a flash of light,
there and gone.”

Ode to the Cyclist and other poems is Andy Coyle’s first published volume of poetry.
It is published by the independent publishing house, The Republic of Oma Rapeti Press.

Ode to the Cyclist and other poems highlights the best of Coyle’s poetry over the last ten years. The collection includes regional poetry from Bank’s Peninsula and Christchurch.
