Norma Cole recalls being introduced to Raworth via the mails by Claude Royet-Journoud; she reads a handwritten note by Raworth and a poem from his book Lazy Left Hand (1986), followed by an original poem composed of words from Raworth's poems: "Ordinary Things / for Tom Raworth."

Recorded tributes from Italian poets Gian Antonio Pozzi and Rita deli Esposti are played. Duncan McNaughton tells a humorous story about him and Raworth being filmed in Venice, Italy, by Japanese tourists, speaks to Raworth's family, to the relationship between printing and dissent, and notes that Ruth Raworth, an ancestor of Tom, printed one of John Milton's books. He also reads a written tribute from Dale Heard. Lyn Hejinian reads from an original piece titled "Metonymies for Tom." An audio recording from Andy Berlin plays, relating the first time Berlin met Raworth, in 1975; he then reads from Writing: "Spears of laughter...." Steve Dickison remarks on hearing Raworth read for the first time, reads "The West" from Levre de Poche lines from Lion Lion (Trigram Press, 1970), and recalls points of crossed paths. Miles Champion speaks on behalf of the Raworth family, recounts a story from the early years of Raworth's and Barry Hall's Goliard Press; he reads, at Val Raworth's request, "Voices" by Constantine Cavafy, "a favorite poem of Val and Tom," then concludes by running Tom's name through a music box which belonged to Raworth. The evening concludes with a 2012 recording of Raworth reading poems from Tottering State: "Ah, the poetry of Miss Parrot's feet demonstrating the tango," "Shoes," "Page 298," "You've ruined my evening...," and "Now the pink stripes" (CD recording produced by Geoffrey Young for The Figures, 2014).
