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.

Talking about Cholera with Joseph Conrad

Apr. 9, 2017 2:10 pm
Categories: None

The words were hard fought,

often a mere 300 a day.

The German hospital in Homerton,

a vague memory of the great man,

unwell, capitulating to his demons,

and those of Empire.

Changed days,

we now fear incoming gentrification,

just as deadly in some respects,

unfettered capitalism,

red in tooth and claw,

that new humanity,

that unsettles.

Conrad knew,

and missed by a century,

this age of fevered,

hyped-up entropy.

I'm still heading up the river,

toward Kurtz,

toward uncertainty.
