My poem, ‘The Panda’, has been published in London Grip’s Autumn issue.
The sounds of the house begin above him,
a family waking. He thinks of Stalin
preferring a sofa to a presidential bed,
of the ace of pentacles gleaming
from the apocrypha of a bookshelf
of the bottle of Cahors he drank last night,
a black wine, dark as a tarot reader’s smile.

I'm a writer and poet. My first novel, All the Dogs, appeared in 2008, and was described by Niall Griffiths as 'a stirring debut, a compellingly written tract on the importance of finding a place on the earth.' My fiction has appeared in London Noir, Crimewave, Black Static and 3AM. I live in London, where, amongst other things, I teach Creative Writing for the Open University. https://absenceclub.com
