Read all the poetry magazines on their shelves. Write in peace. Think. Dream. Meet mates for lunch. Have lunch alone. Walk along the river. Go to Waterloo and people-watch. Watch the skate boarders. Listen to the buskers under the bridges.
If you can't get to London, browse the magazine archive kept by the Library, issues of amazing poetry mags sitting there waiting for you to read em.
Use lines as prompts. Write your own. Prose, flash, poem... who cares?
