Poems

My first full collection, ibant obscuriwas published by Knives Forks and Spoons Press in 2019. A pamphlet Erinys: Three Studies came out from Oystercatcher in 2016 (you can hear an extract from a reading at the Poetry Library here).

My poems have appeared in Poetry Wales,  POEM Magazine, Modern Poetry in Translation  and other places, as well as the anthologies Face Down in the Book of Revelation (Oystercatcher), Dear World (Frosted Fire Press) and Peloton (Templar Poetry). I co-edited the anthology Other Countries with Claire Trévien in 2014 and wrote the libretto for Saffron Hall’s inaugural children’s opera, The Glass Knight (2016).

Non-scripta

Hyacinthoides / Endymion / Scilla –

.                (spring roots
.                perced / winter
.                muted to was and will)

their orthodox apoptosis
chiming [time to give
the carbon back
– Anon.]

while April dapples stubborn
joy on the river the tulip
-tree dogsick fledgling dead

               and the breeze
                             slurs before long
.                                           [silence]
