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.

Sartre in stasis

I walked on Hoe Street's molten tarmac

Trying to take the cultural temperature

Instead I met Mickey

In his cups

Some, most of us can't afford to be existentialists

We rail and carp

And it's back to work or the dole queue

On a grey Monday.

Mickey. berated me

For not quite living the dream

That he perceived I was projecting

The truth is I was tired

Of his half-cut assumptions

And the tenner I gave him

Was a very cheap pay-off.

I've never seen him since

Though wish him well

I'm not so very different

Only nurture offered me a better example

Otherwise I'd readily

View life through the amber lens

The Scots-Irish disease:

'I'm a recovering melancholic

In the Jehovah's Witness protection programme...'

Carter cracked at the bar,

Breaking the purgatorial Sunday hush

In this secular temple

Sacrements in bottle, keg or draught.

Benediction in a hanshake

And a deft one-liner.
