POETRY
HOW DO YOU WANT THE FIRE TO LEAVE YOU?



Between these pages there is love, lust and beauty, the mechanics of human behaviour, the challenges of simple existence and of course, the art of creative thinking. They are all stripped naked and drummed out on the page to the rhythm of this authors exploration into thought.

ABOUT
I write poems in an attempt to communicate mysterious needs in a language created over time with an admixture of obsession. Belief, need, ambition, self worth, inspiration, hope, these things currently occupy my mind. Finding a place for my writing has become important to me, though the reasons for this beyond the obvious are unclear.

"Your fortune reseeds
as good times fill an
absence of the recognition
required for you to move
through to the next
remarkable expression
of a disused code of living."

WORDS TO MUSIC
Composed mostly using found sounds to create music that reflects the spontaneity and natural rhythms of my poetry.


MOVING ON

Moving on again,
everything passes by
dark
and
sharp
with the shine
of a finished rain.

Moving on again,
while everything out there
is locked in place
as the storm clouds
hang like forgotten animals.

I’m moving
through towns,
through lives
as the street lights project the shadows
that scan the insides of this car.

I change up
as another tiny world
fades in my side mirror.
I search for a station
turn up the volume
and drive.
