Samples

Office Panto Box-filed appetites, alumnus grey air, water cooler gloom. Ring-bound ambitions, pencil pleat pert, early deadline dreams; she locums as Aladdin to his grass Widow Twankey. First Published - The Journal 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 - Hedgehog Poetry Press Shortlisted – Aesthetica Creative Writing Award
