Hi. I am just a simple poet writting simple poetry about life as I see it - some sad - some questioning - some political - but all just life.


ADRIFT My thoughts drift aimlessly about me, a flotilla of small ships floating free, foundering in a restless sea, flotsam and jetsam heading towards destruction, splintering beyond reconstruction lost without trace.


Look at the beautiful people with their designer smiles nurturing their egos and discussing acceptable styles. Look at the beautiful people their manners so over-controlled listen to their wisdoms and the truth starts to unfold. Look at the beautiful people as their faces merge into one their shadows are interchangeable clonings already begun.

Hi Flyntland, thanks so much for your comment on 'Young Family In The Sunshine'. I think I imagined a certain naivety/rose-tinted outlook to the narrator of that one - the more cynical part of me knows nothing is as perfect as it seems from the outside and that everything moves in cycles and shifts with time. Thanks for reading. P.S. I have been thoroughly enjoying your work!
