I am an experienced writer who has worked across a variety of mediums including: screenplay, script editing, prose, poetry,and novelization. I am particularly interested in psychogeography and the scope it gives both academics and creative writers to effectively trade elements of their fields.

Vernal equinox in purgatory

Mar. 20, 2012 7:35 am
Categories: None

The unbearable atmospheric pressure

1000 millibars or fewer

headaches

impending asthma attack

general anxiety

and fear

welcome home

welcome to the father and son

and whole wretched system

the constant reminders

of why I finally left

The crucifix over the door

old fashioned Irish catholic longing

for the lands sunderered by the incoming

transplanted Scots

or Cromwellian overlord

From a distance of centuries

I still see tricolours flying over tenemental skylines

union flags and the blood of The Somme faithful

ancient turf wars

innate hypnotic flutes

lambeg drums

echoes of unknown martyrs

and sociopaths

wee boys with pistols

armalites

Buckfast

dewy eyes

erased memories

of an actual history

The Clearances still happen

economic high roads to the concrete honeycomb

The Griffin

The battleship grey skies mock

taunt

deliver

unease

Only humour

And some landscape wonders

keep me coming back
