the garden

golden gates
cut throat pools, precise
always hazy
reverie and drums
switchblade grass
clear waters, mirrors
sleeve drifts
the sunrise, reflections
losing focus
pouring more wine
sweet rhythms
trees, cherub fountains
soft sight
wondering, dreaming

time to lash

get me a shit wig, high heels and a military jacket
let me show you what a non-issue your bulshit is
bring on the buckets of love you fuckers
time to lash you with what you’ve been missing out on
call me a sell out call me fake call me a faggot
you will never know me
i can be whoever you don’t want me to be
and i will strut passed as you lie in your dirt
blood boiling with the bass
shut up the fuck up and watch out

Hard Copy Ahoy!

Look what arrived in the post today! Still finding it hard to believe that someone actually published my stuff. I’ve checked out some of the other writers in it too as it’s all great stuff. Will go cover to cover on the weekend but for now the pages with my 2 poems on will be well fingered.


I did get a free e-copy but I purchased the hard copy myself at full price. 50% of profits are being donated to the disability charity Scope so trying to get a free copy would have been very cheeky indeed. For this very good reason though I fully encourage you to buy it in a format of your preference.

Go on, buy buy buy! You know you want to!



(I feel like I should mention that I don’t see a penny for this at all, which I knew I wouldn’t when I got involved. All profits go to Scope and to Dagda Publishing so they can both continue their great work and grow!)

2 Of My Poems feature in a new Anthology from Dagda Publishing!

“Ballads: An Anthology of New Poetry”

The good folk over at Dagda Publishing have very kindly included 2 of my poems is their new music themed anthology. I’m over the moon and I would like to say a massive thank you to them for even considering me in the first place.

Here are the Amazon links, regardless of my inclusion please buy it as 50% of profits are being donated to the disability charity Scope.
