This month my poems, ‘Amnesia’ and ‘English Litter-ature’ are in Boyslut. After all my fiction publications lately, I felt I’d get some more of my poetry out in the world. As all poets know, what happens if a poem gets stuck in your head for too long? Watch scanners and see.

First things first when you check out Boyslut – the woman in the cover picture isn’t me! She’s librarian-saucy, I’m more the tomato-ketchup kind of saucy: a bit sugary, a bit tangy and definitely red.

Gnome or misnomer?!

Gnome or misnomer?!

As for the poems, a little word-play here and there, with a lot of salt and flour and an egg or two thrown into the mix and what do you get? A wacky-pancake for breakfast. Enjoy!
