August kicks off with 3 of my poems appearing in Black Mirror Magazine. What this batch have in common is that they all play around with shape and form. Since poetry should be open to the interpretation of the reader, I won’t say too much about the inspiration behind them. Poems are subjective, and all too often the poet can get ‘precious’ about their work. I’ve met many writers in my time who try to defend the intention behind their work. Why bother? Isn’t it wonderful to hear how other people see your work? Isn’t that how we develop and improve as artists? At least I like to think so… comments are always welcome!

    I like cosmic. You have an existentialist flare to your poetry. Keep up the good work.
