Poems

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

Individual 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).

I’m currently working on an exploration of the history and mythology of the West Wales coast, titled A Pembrokeshire Carol.

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]
