Hello, thank you for reading my profile. I am running through the wild winds of winter and into the summer sunshine. My influences are broad, from the traditional beauty and power of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Dylan Thomas, Philip Larkin and Betjeman to the depth and complexity of Seamus Heaney and modern searing truths of Charles Bukowski and now Kate Tempest. I am particularly an admirer of Ms Tempest, given my own writing is always influenced by a rhythm and beat. I personally write about love, hope, human insecurities, death, our needs, mental illness and weaknesses, strengths, deep desires to be part of a fellow brethren and the lusts of life in an everyday world. I am anti-post truth and a fighter for freedom of the mind. Each poem I write is about the truth, real people and real events. Join me in being a Poet of the Truth, in a world of chaos and rising fascism. It is time to take back this century before the post truth world takes it away x so kiss, dance and sing with me. Our news is never fake. :)


Blow wild out into my path of time, Of rhymed resistance to mild senses, Rush and swirl to abstract abandonment, Around and encased from a sterile world, As I stand awaiting my ambuscade. Reject what can only be failed inculcation, Admonished to a pointless exhausted existence, Now I rally and cry to battle, Body littered with ageing contusions, So run, run, through those wild winds of winter. Now I am running with face lashed to leather, Pounded by unkind inclement weather, But free, yes freedom to race on my way, Freed of encaged thinking to just waylay, Rebooted to radicalise this wasting day. I am an actor, a soldier, A writer to yet be named, A freedom fighter for all too tame, Run with me now or forever be shamed, Do not wait for fate to devour your wanting pain. I am running through the wild winds, Running on forever, Running past those black dog beasts, That sing the songs of anxiety and fear, Running, running, to a world not here.

Kick ass bio man.

The compassion is also on the rise, AM, let's hope it continues to do so.??

Can't wait to see what you churn out next. Something sprinkled with healthy doses of truth no doubt.

I see you enjoy F Scott Fitzgerald ? I was recently directed in a short play written by him called 'Porcelain and Pink'! It was such an enjoyable read and even more to be a part of! Plus being on a bathtub on stage was pretty daring i must say. Haha.

Hi AM - having read your comment about Brexit on John
Coopey's home page (good to know we both enjoy his
champion chuckles), I felt obliged to point out the democracy in the superiority of "leave" votes even if the
verdict didn't meet expectations. I'm old enough to
remember the original machinations employed by Heath
and Co. (he was warned by a Tory minister that if the
British public knew what was intended they'd never vote
in favour and took the decision not to tell them!), and
the stealthy step by step tactics employed towards a
fait accompli once our MPs decided to go along. I've
watched for many years during which the high handed
behaviour of the Brussels entity saw our own prime
ministers being lectured on ignoring the opinion of the
public and become a "European" (e.g. a toady of their
master plan). This was not, and is not, the way we do things here and time has seen the wheel turn to pull
the mask of federal ambition and deceit aside. Now
they even justify seeking their own EU army, despite
the proven oversight of NATO - the true guardians of
Western security. It's all a very long way from a
"Common Market", the last occasion of a public vote
and even then the procedure was based essentially on trading between nations. It is no accident that all
that has followed has been between those already in
hock to the process of political integration - with any
reference to the peoples of the various nations
definitely OFF the CM/EEC/EC/EU (in sequence) agenda.
There had to be a reaction and it is perhaps fitting that
this small island nation should take the first step to
regain self-determination while the wider world watches with expectation and anticipation.
Cheers. MC.

Really enjoyed the profile and the sample. The words truth and freedom mean different things to different people so though I also wish to run free and spread the truth I hope your poems flesh out your definition of these terms to you. If we coincide in views of what truth and freedom mean then we are brethren in arms but if we disagree on these terms we run as opponents.
However, once again, really enjoyed your sample and hope to find time to read more of your work.

Just to say thanks for liking World of Plastic AM. A beacon of interest is always nice in a sea of indifference. I just read your sample poem, and would like to say I admire the feistiness and resilience of soul that it expresses. Some clever lines, a sort of rally cry. Go for it!!
