13 Ways of Looking at Beetles


The inaugural edition of this magazine came out yesterday. These guys really know what they are doing, and are lovely too. Great to get feedback on why they liked the poem and  therefore selected for publication, Proof of poem and bio sent, so only myself to blame if typos.


The Sculptor


Another poetry link. I trained as a sculptor. I miss thrusting my hand into bowls of plaster as much as i miss anything. Hope to be back in the sort of situation where i can do so again one day. (stares wistfully into the distance)

There were a couple of typos in the publishing of this poem. Last couple of lines should be “I am the residue” And it should read *But not apologise”, It is amazing how many times these typos occur. Some magazines send proof first. Most don’t.
