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.

Billie Holiday, Bird and Me

Apr. 2, 2012 7:40 am
Categories: None

We went to the seaside,


Time away from prying

proprietorial newsprint

Billie was calm

Bird carried his horn

a faraway look of impending doom

Me, I could only look on

in disgust

As history

written by the victors

came too bloody late

to save this pair

my musical saviours

Tears blinded me

as I left them

Old albums discarded

Coney Island

October almost defeating

almost crushing the last spirit

the fading humanity

as the broken records

the broken lives


as The Fall mocked

mocked the impotent salt water

on my face

in my eyes

shorelines of indifference

I lit my last smoke

and waited for the silent return

to the Caledonian cringe

my own particular national curse

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
