I am a deputy head teacher in Cumbria and have taught in primary schools for over thirty years. Before that, I worked in the power industry as a student engineer, a lettuce picker for East Coast Salads and a painter in a corrugated card factory. My poems surface occasionally in various publications and other stuff has appeared from time to time on BBC Radio. I read at spoken word events such as Verbalise in the Kendal Brewery Arts Centre and Spotlight in Lancaster.

Hi Jonathan. I've just read, and really enjoyed Holes. I just had to read the rest of the poems you have posted, and was equally impressed. I love the way you give a voice to an inanimate object.
Cheers Kevin

I wince whenever M.G. crosses my screen. Not exactly sure why, but unwilling to think more about it. I commented on such only this morning.
