Samples

Under the Influence of Ursa Minor On summer nights driven from the mean room with its lean-to lav, by air that knew only a sordid breathing, we slouched streets uncompromised by lamplight, for a fly-tipped mattress; an upholstered road-kill to lie, side by side, mind by mind, narcotising our Earth-shattered dreams in the stars. - Highly Commended in YorkFest 2018 The Hadal Zone Unfathomably alien, darkly devoid; bioluminescences bloom. Maritime miasma, spawning desolation; abyssal gametes fuse. Primordial nomads, enraptured by depth; freakshow exquisite in gloom. Blind mouths feed. - First published by The Hedgehog Poetry Press 2018 - Shortlisted in the Aesthetica Creative Writing Award 2019
