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.

Hobbit Bothering For Beginners

Mar. 12, 2017 7:46 pm
Categories: None

I never did like Tolkien much,


Found his prose ludicrously prolix,


And dull.


I found the Golden Age posited


More than a little worrying,


Summoning up an authoritarianism


At odds with my own notion of freedom


And community.


I avoided the classics,


With their own fearful gravitas,


Preferring the margins,


Where I continue to dwell,


Mopping up the regal overspill,


Lees from the aristocracy.


I’ve no doubt Tolkien’s intentions were noble,


But therein lies the problem.


There are no Golden Ages.


No Kings or Queens worth much


No supernatural order running the show.


The only ring I am enthused about is the one I’ll wear


Six months from now,


For very different and no less golden reasons.
