Drifter's Escape
In
the days before a whole generation became harnessed to the mobile phone my
parents bought me a portable black and white TV. There were three channels to
choose from and at least two of them closed down at midnight. Not
long after this a season of Clint E...

The Spaghetti Rhinoceros
A
plank of wood leans against my bedroom wall like a lesson in mathematics. It’s
been there for days. I have to walk around it to get to the sock drawer. I have
to remember to walk around it when the lights have been turned out. The plank
is like putting th...

generations of feet Rising through
patchworks of bracken The burnt honey
of winter The glow worm

bright knuckle heads, Fronds vibrate to
a silent song. These evolutionary
pioneers, Per...

The Flea Market Clock
The
clock has a face the colour of buttermilk and the glass is coated in dust so thick I
could write my name in it. The
stall is owned by an old lady. She
looks like a broom wearing a housecoat. When
I get home I wipe the dust from the face. The
clock had l...

Crosshatch
Follows
his shadow halfway
up the stairs, torchlight
wavers hollows
a cave in
whitewash. A
crumple of paper taped
to the wall. Blue
ink threads the

rolling smoke of sk...

Solitudes: 20 Ceramic fish swim a cobalt-black sky. You get a special jolt from stargazing... better than a rainbow's end stumble. Stoneware cups, watercolor rainbows, whiskey vapor: feral hypnagogic night.
